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
&
AUREA part II

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.
