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!
