Mitten follows the final weeks of rehearsal of Mitten wir im Leben sind, a performance by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, her company Rosas and cellist Jean- Guihen Queyras, based on the six cello suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. The film offers a glance into De Keersmaeker’s meticulous working process, building a choreographic universe by studying the musical composition. This intense creative process of continuously reshaping and honing, characterised by an inexhaustible longing for precision and detail, is reflected in the filmmakers’ patient look at the work of the choreographer, the musician and the dancers.
