“In Trois Grandes Fugues, the 35-member company brings together a magisterial trio of choreographers… With each of their highly individual settings we hear, see and feel Beethoven’s fugue in fabulously new ways.” The Guardian (U.K.)

Celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday with three interpretations of his beloved masterpiece “Grosse Fuge” by three female choreographers – France’s rebellious Maguy Marin, America’s meticulous Lucinda Childs and Belgium’s hypnotic Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, the choreographer behind the critically-acclaimed restaging of West Side Story on Broadway.

The acclaimed 35-member company is known for its exceptionally ambitious and diverse repertory, showcasing a stunningly broad range of choreographers, from Merce Cunningham to William Forsythe. With this “simple yet audacious idea” (The New York Times), the company highlights different interpretations of choreography, movement and musicality, performed to the fullest by an extraordinary cast of dancers.

Lucinda Childs: Grande Fugue
