Bach and breakdance do not fit? With their fascinating Red Bull Flying Bach performance, four times breakdancing world champions Flying Steps and opera director Christoph Hagel prove quite the opposite. Since the unique fusion between urban art and classic music has been launched in 2011, the crew filled magic locations around the world. After the sold out world tour in 2014 in different cities, Red Bull Flying Bach is visiting Qatar for the second time on November 22nd and for one night only.
High culture meets urban art: In the fusion 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. After the great success of two sold out shows in Doha 2012, Red Bull Flying Bach World Tour will now come back to Doha for a one night only at the Theatre, QNCC.
The world’s most popular breakdance crew has been founded by Vartan and Amigo in Berlin. Since 1993, the Flying Steps have won four breakdance world championships (2x Red Bull Beat Battle, 2 x Battle Of The Year) and are well known for their successful musical projects and top-class performances on big stages around the world. Their role in the scene has grown through their social commitment and their own dance school, the Flying Steps Dance Academy. For their first own production, Red Bull Flying Bach have been awarded with the highly reputated "ECHO Klassik Sonderpreis 2010", a music award for outstanding achievements in classical music. www.flying-steps.de
"Let the Well-Tempered Clavier be your daily bread", famous German composer Schumann suggested in his work 'Musikalische Haus- und Lebensregeln' in 1850, calling Johann Sebastian Bach's ground-breaking collection of solo keyboard music "the work of all works" at another occasion. For many exceptional musicians since, the Well-Tempered Clavier has offered the nourishment they required. It is widely regarded as one of the most important works in the history of classical music and the most influential pantonal composition. German conductor Hans von Bülow even called it the "Old Testament for piano players".
Whoever attended the first Red Bull Flying Bach Qatar back in 2012, will have the opportunity to renew his amazing previous experience of art marriage on November 22st. And for those who missed the event in Doha two years ago, will now have the chance to attend a spectacular show at the Theatre, QNCC, at 8 PM.
