Flying Bach, which stars Germany’s four-time world champion Flying Steps breakdance troupe, interprets the music of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” widely regarded as one of the most important works in the history of classical music.

The show itself combines Bach’s classical masterpiece with modern electronic beats and clever choreography, a blending of the creative minds of Creative Director Vartan Bassil and the accomplished classical pianist, creative Director Christoph Hagel.

The story follows seven dancers and one teacher, rehearsing for their big day as arguments, fights, disappointments and delights ensue. A mysterious woman joins the story and the conflicts climax: contemporary dance meets breakdance, man meets woman, desire meets refusal, and arrogance meets curiosity.
