“I would like to bring to people something like happiness.”
These are the words tenor saxophonist John Coltrane who
passed away in 1967 used to describe his interest in and the
mystical power of religious music from the far east. “A Love
Supreme,” Coltrane’s marvelous musical creed of 1964, is
the music to which four dancers of Keersmaeker’s company
“Rosas” embark on a search to find an “order of happiness.”
Mysticism and sensuality as well as meditation and
improvisation are the determining factors of their dance.
