Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert, the best-selling jazz solo record of all time, has served as a soundtrack for countless people for almost fifty years, in vulnerable moments as well as ecstatic ones. But before the titular recording is heard in this enchanting work by Trajal Harrell, the house choreographer of the Schauspielhaus Zurich, Joni Mitchell’s voice can be heard. In its fragility and emotional transparency, which is still unparalleled today, it opens up the space for the extremely elegant seven dancers and for their attempts to be close to each other in a world that is determined by distance in more ways than one.
