Following the sold-out 2013 World Tour, Red Bull Flying Bach will bring its powerhouse production to Auckland’s ASB Theatre, for New Zealand’s first-ever shows. Note by note, step by step; the ultimate clash of cultures will inspire audiences at three extraordinary shows, debuting on September 4 – 6 of this year.
Head spins driven by the keys of a piano, power moves following the rhythm of Bach’s fugues: Red Bull Flying Bach turns the worlds of classical music and breakdancing upside down. As piano, harpsichord and electronic beats are compounded with 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.
Choreographer and mastermind behind Red Bull Flying Bach, Vartan Bassil, says Flying Steps first visit to Australia in 2013 was a huge success, and the crew are thrilled to make their first appearance in New Zealand.
