AUREA – Variations on Bach (2015)

A two-piece dance project by Emanuele Soavi in company in collaboration with Susanne Linke and the Duisburger Philharmoniker

AUREA solo

Together with the Duisburger Philharmoniker’s Baroque Ensemble as well as members of his own ensemble – Federico Casadei, Lisa Kirsch and Francesca Poglie – Soavi now extends the ideas he developed in his solo performance AUREA. Biblical connotations and mathematical patterns are the base for a dialogue of ‚black‘ figures in between past and future, placed in a dystopian landscape. Johann Sebastian Bach’s music is the essence of this production. Due to its mathematical structure it seeks and finds beauty in a perfect order. In this production it is especially Bach’s ‚Musikalisches Opfer‘  that provides a structure for its choreography.
