Mitten follows the final weeks of rehearsal of Mitten wir im Leben sind, a performance by choreographer 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 musical composition.
