This October, internationally acclaimed Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and her company Rosas bring the North American premiere of The Six Brandenburg Concertos to the Wade Thompson Drill Hall at Park Avenue Armory. Choreographed by De Keersmaeker, The Six Brandenburg Concertos is an evening-length dance work for 16 Rosas company members that explores the transcendental dimension found in the Brandenburg Concertos, one of J.S. Bach's most iconic masterpieces. In the Armory production, De Keersmaeker and her company are joined by the baroque ensemble B'Rock-making its North American debut-who play the concertos live under the baton of violinist Amandine Beyer. The production marks the continuation of De Keersmaeker's decades-long examination of the relationship between dance and music and her persistent fascination with Bach's work, which first captivated her during her early years of choreographing. The production also builds on the Armory's rich lineage of exploring Bach's enduring legacy.

THE CHRISTIANS by Lucas Hnath takes us into the world of an evangelical megachurch, a place that holds a certain amount of mystery for those of us who practice different religions or lack belief in any faith. Apollinaire Theatre Company and Director Brooks Reeves set the stage with a 16-voice choir, accompanied on the organ by their conductor, and a supersized wooden cross looming over them on the upstage wall. To create an ambience of authenticity, when the pastor and his associate make their entrance, they reach into the audience to shake hands and welcome us to the service while the choir rocks out on a processional hymn.
