Why See Flying Steps - Flying Bach?
The Ultimate Classical/Urban Crossover
Who says classical music, modern ballet, break dance and electronica can't get along?! The ultimate culture clash, the Flying Bach returns after a critically acclaimed North American debut in 2014, to be performed by leading world champion b-boy dance company Flying Steps once more. Comprised of over 30 of the world's best urban dancers, the Berlin-based crew have over two decades of experience sharing the art form all over the world.
From the minds of Flying Steps founder Vartan Bassil and opera director Christoph Hagel, the production is a sazzling, energetic and visionary whirlwind of old school dance and even older music, fusing an electronic arrangement of Johan Sebastian Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier with virtuosic head-spins, classic power moves freezes and floor work. Its central story unfolds when a group of b-boy dancers encounter a contemporary dancer for the first time and the resulting explorations and conflict meld into one breathtaking meeting of worlds.
