New Work for Goldberg Variations

Venue Matthews Theatre
New Work for Goldberg Variations (NW for GV) is an evening-length piece for piano and seven dancers, created by classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein and choreographer Pam Tanowitz. Inspired by and set to the live performance of Bach’s iconic and commanding score Goldberg Variations, the work is performed by Dinnerstein with Tanowitz’s company, Pam Tanowitz Dance. Dinnerstein, one of the foremost Bach interpreters of her generation (and a specialist in Goldberg), brings her nuanced understanding of the demanding score to the project; Tanowitz’s choreography will use a slyly deconstructed classical movement vocabulary to translate Bach’s intricate score into movement.
