Bach puts soundtrack to the best break dancers in Madrid and Bilbao
The show Red Bull Flying Bach arrives for the first time to Spain. The music of classical composer JS Bach serves as a soundtrack to the best break dancers in the world to build a unique show that, after turning around the world will visit Madrid from 8 to 11 September (Teatro Nuevo Alcalá) and Bilbao the 17 and 18 of this month (Palacio Euskalduna).
Can you imagine the most talented breakers turn to the rhythm of classical music of Bach? The four times world champions in this discipline and opera director Christoph Hagel get it in this performance that combines two universes as seemingly distant, almost antagonistic.
The concept of Red Bull Flying Bach came in 2010 when Vartan Bassil, founder of one of the most important schools of urban dance in the world, decided to create a show where the dancers break to move to the rhythm of classical music, in particular, pace of well-tempered Harpsichord classic German author Johann Sebastian Bach.
He was born in Berlin Flying Steps school, an academy which come to form, the best breakers. “I was attracted to the idea of changing the ballerina pirouetting on tiptoe for a break dancer jumping and tricks hacienda,” Bassil says.
Since the project was launched, Red Bull Flying Bach has traveled hundreds of theaters around the world: Vienna, Stockholm, Moscow, Prague, Zurich, Oslo, Copenhagen, Singapore, Baku, Doha, Dubai, Tokyo, Beirut, Istanbul , Santiago de Chile, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, Auckland, Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney, among others.
The cast consists of 8 Flying Bach breakers and a dancer has traveled around 30 countries and has performed before more than 370,000 people. A show for all audiences where classical dance coexists with the urban dance, visual and music director.
