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.
“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.
