Beethoven

String Quartet no. 13, op. 130 + Grosse Fuge, op. 133

Hearing the music through vibrations: it is said that that is how Beethoven was able to continue composing after he became deaf. Dancers and prominent Deaf advocates Antoine Hunter and Zahna Simon prove to the extreme how well this is possible. Although they are deaf, they have learned to interpret the vibrations of the music, to create complex choreographies and express themselves through dance in a mix of jazz ballet and urban dance. Together with the Calder Quartet, Antoine Hunter and Zahna Simon have made a choreography to Beethoven’s String Quartet opus 130 and the Grosse Fuge.

Beethoven’s late quartets are like books by Murakami or David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. We can only understand them to a certain extent, but it is precisely this mystery of the unattainable, that genius hint of the superhuman, that creates an irresistible feeling of fear of missing out. An never-fading urge to fathom.
