Guest Suites is inspired by Bach’s Cello Suites, which choreographer Jacky Lansley and her frequent collaborator composer Jonathan Eato use as an artistic template.
The first three suites will be performed live by outstanding cellist Audrey Riley and, on historic recording, by Pablo Casals. Eato’s contemporary addition Suite Inserts – a ‘compositional reworking’ of four movements for cello and electronics – will be performed live by Riley and, on a laptop, by Eato himself.
Central to Guest Suites is the idea of artists guesting in each other’s worlds. A core ensemble of four dancers will be joined by guest dancers and actors.
