Mass B – Fêtes galantes

18 & 19 September 8:00 pm


Bach has to be danced to until you can hear the dust falling from the wigs of church council members and the person beneath becomes visible. This is what a famous conductor once said and in doing so formulated a creed that could have come from Béatrice Massin. This French choreographer and Baroque dance expert has now worked on the B minor Mass, which is one of the most magnificent meditations on faith in Western music. The sound, which is interwoven with compositions by Ligeti, provides a multi-layered architecturally stringent framework in which ten young dancers create a human fresco – they are alone, on the run, seeking one another; then a community is formed and with this comes hope for the future.
