Bach Project


One of Italy’s best ballet troupe presents a double bill inspired by Bach.

Domus Aurea is a collaboration between visual artist Massimo Uberti and choreographer Diego Tortelli for 16 dancers. Movements are inspired by construction, destruction, the feeling of being born again and rebellion.

Domus Aurea is follows by Sarabande: an energetic black and white piece for six talented dancers to the sound of the Partita in D minor for solo violin. It is a re-creation of one the most astonishing pieces by one of the most talented contemporary choreographers: Jiří Kylián.
