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.

Introducing 3...

At the moment I'm doing a bit of clean out of stuff and I'm finding the feeling of freedom after letting go and the selling of unwanted items or items that no longer have a real use in the house so rewarding.

Here are three of the items I'm currently selling on Gum Tree that you might just be interested in...

Spring Beauty Must Haves
Do you smell that? It's spring in the air and summer is just around the corner. It's time to start shedding those layers of clothes, and getting outdoors to enjoy the gorgeous weather. Spring for me beauty wise is a time to look after my skin and hair, to embrace warmer weather scents and as always use products that are not tested on animals. Here are some of my favourite beauty must haves for spring which help me look after my skin and hair.

Kora Organics Purifying Day and Night Cream 
I'm in love with this light-weight daily moisturiser from Kora Organics. It's blended with natural and organically grown plant extracts of Grapefruit, Mandarin and Green Tea that help to control excess oil while providing the skin with optimum hydration. Available at Kora Organics.

Crop Pure Rosehip Oil
For several years now I've always had Rosehip Oil in my bathroom cabinet, it's a lightweight, rapidly absorbing, natural oil with Vitamin A properties to assist in fighting the common signs of ageing and helps to restore damaged skin. I love massaging a few drops of The Crop's Pure Rosehip Oil on my face after cleansing. Available at Crop.

OGX Sea Mineral Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner
It might seem a little odd that my hair is damaged from being in the and around the ocean, though the sea has healing powers too when it comes to damaged hair. Algae and kelp are great when it comes to hydrating hair, along with a bevy of other sea minerals. The OGX Sea Mineral Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner is packed full of goodness from the sea and smells divine too. Available at OGX.

Dripped - Homage To Jackson Pollock

 
Dripped is a short film by Léo Verrier and produced by Chez Eddy, that pays tribute to famed artist Jackson Pollock. This short animated film takes you to New York in the 1950s as Jackson Pollock sets out to find his creative voice.

Through the jazzy music, muddy tones and colours Pollock tries to see how he fits in with the well known greats, such as Picasso, in a most unconventional manner. His actions are more fitting to that of an art thief with an appetite for art that is almost literal.

I don't want to ruin the end for you, but the film does lead you the moment where Pollock discovers his characteristic, colourful style, that we've come to know and see today. What a glorious moment it is to.

Dripped is both clever and beautiful, it's an ode to inspiration and innovation within the contemporary art world.

Hints + Tips - The Changing Workspace

Might seem like I've workplace space on the brain lately, however I did find this infographic from Alliance Interiors interesting. It looks at what changes are yet to come in regards to the changing workplace as an outcome of the office becoming less business-focused and more employee-oriented.

Some of the most noticeable points are trends towards: 
  • Open offices
  • Mobility and ergonomics continue to be major concerns 
  • Merging the indoors with the outdoor 
I do very much like the trend towards merging the indoors and outdoors, even if it is just a little pot plant on your desk.
