En el nombre de Bach/In the Name of Bach is the new proposal for a performance piece by María Magdalena Garzón, following the line of research begun three years ago exploring the relationship between music and dance in performance.

While the story of the relationship between these two art forms makes us think deeply about the main artistic movements, their manifestations, aesthetics and procedures, this project, at least for now, does not claim to be a work of history or research into baroque music and dance. Bringing the two languages together, however, is an attempt to recover the essence of the gestures, in sound and body, of a shared grammar, without filters or conventional baggage. Working on music written earlier, whether or not it was composed for dance, provides a concrete, well-defined framework to work within, while also offering a broad range of possibilities and strategies for composition. In this way, in short, Bach’s work gives us a forest full of symbols, a whole continent of the unforeseen. Its vast complexity and semantic ramifications lead us to unpick the poetry of a process of craftsmanship, to work on references from our cultural heritage, and put our emphasis on the minute detail of the manipulation of the material as an element in composition. En el nombre de Bach is thus based on a desire to give due value to music that has already been written, is already made.
