Red Bull Flying Bach Is Back In Melbourne

Red Bull Flying Bach
Following sell-out shows in 2013, Red Bull Flying Bach returns to Melbourne as part of a national tour. Having of seen Red Bull Flying Bach in 2013 I can assure that it is something very unique. In the most magnificent way it introduces classical music to the street scene, whilst also introducing to the fans of high art to the the best in urban dance.

Red Bull Flying Bach shatters the boundaries between classical and urban art forms, fusing the elegant masterpieces of visionary 18th century composer, Johann Sebastian Bach, with the unrestricted and explosive dance style of four times world champion breakdance crew, Flying Steps.

As piano, harpsichord and electronic beats are compounded with head spins, power moves, freezes and ballet steps, a storyline that revives and visualises Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier is created, providing art in motion that delivers an unforgettable experience for the audience.

“Red Bull Flying Bach really offers something unique – it introduces classical music to the street scene, but also allows high art fans to experience the best in urban dance.” explains Vartan Bassil, choreographer and mastermind behind Red Bull Flying Bach.

“The sharpness, freshness and coolness of Bach’s preludes and fugues work faultlessly with the dance style of the Flying Steps. When this type of breakdance comes together with the sound of piano and harpsichord, the incredible masterpieces of Bach are brought to life and made relevant for a modern audience.” says Christoph Hagel, Artistic Director, Red Bull Flying Bach.

  1. I'd Fly and keep flying. I'd fly for as long as i can, as high as i can, so as to see as much as i can. That is, stopping down at any one place would seem like a waste of an opportunity to really see the world.

  2. Wings would propel me straight through the atmosphere into the realm of another universe, circling the earth doing an aerial world tour from space, a fly by past the moon, then onto the milky way. A chance to fly into the unknown.

  3. The first place I'd go if I had wings and could fly would be to the revist all the places I enjoy hiking through and see them from another perspective.


  4. If I'd have wings I'd fly to the moon to see the earth :)
