Alae is a full-time work for a grand piano, a pianist and three dancers. Together they attack Beethoven’s magnificent piano music. In the set illustrates the poetry of everyday life, using the choreographer’s fine expression and spatial dynamics. The playful meets the heartfelt when brilliant performing artists coexist with live music on stage. 88 keys and 3 dancers together create a room full of possibilities.

The performance is an artistic meeting between Örjan Andersson, one of Sweden’s leading choreographers, and the New York-based Beethoven interpreter Per Tengstrand, one of Sweden’s most successful musicians in the international concert scenes.
