Red Bull Flying Bach European Tour: High culture meets urban art


Classical music meets breakdance for the groundbreaking Red Bull Flying Bach European tour. Four time breakdancing world champions Flying Steps have joined forces with opera director Christoph Hagel to unleash this unique pairing of music and dance. Following critically acclaimed world premiere performances at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie and the famous award ECHO Klassik Sonderpreis 2010, the Red Bull Flying Bach now starts to tour Europe.

 

High culture meets urban art: In the clash of cultures Red Bull Flying Bach turns the international classical world upside down. Their creative performance visualizes and revives Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier crossing the borders of serious music and youth culture. Note by note. Step by step. With piano, harpsichord and electronic beats. With head spins, power moves and freezes. With visuals and a storyline, 70 minutes long.

In 2011, the Red Bull Flying Bach European Tour will capture international stages: after the kick-off appearance in Bonn (DE), shows in Copenhagen (DK), Istanbul and Ankara (TR), Zurich (CH), Vienna (AT) as well as an extensive tour through Germany will follow.
