When Bach meets Contemporary Dance : "Bach Studies, I Fly, I Flow, I Melt" [fr]

[French May] : Two outstanding performances of contemporary dance at the HK cultural center.

One of the first Le French May performances featured Benjamin Millepied’s show "Bach Studies, I Fly, I Flow, I Melt" .

Inspired by Bach’s music, the choreographer explores the Partita for violin No.2 in D minor, adapting the composition techniques of counterpoint, fugue and cannon to the dance. With Alessandro Sartori’s costumes, "Bach Studies" translates music into movement.

A sophisticated, delicate and emotionally compelling rendition, that sets the tone of this very rich 27th edition!
