Bach in the Street (eng)

Who are you? Where are you from?
Where are you going?

  • Bach in the Street (BiS) is a music and dance performance with two of the foremost artists of their genres.
  • BiS welcomes very different and broad audiences.
  • The performance is 30 minutes long and is followed by a talk between the artists and the audience for about 30 minutes.
  • Classical music and street dance are the main genrens in this  easily accessible production, together with hip-hop beats and a variety of musical genres.
  • Questions of life and death are presented in an almost easy-going fashion through tales on heritages and the burden of memories. To escape and find refuge. To find roots in a new soil. To find one’s own place and to grow throug art and culture.
  • The performance can be combined with discussions and workshops around the questions put forward: Who are you? Where are you from? Where are you going? But also with practical workshops in music, dance and creative writing.
