Flying Steps - Performance

This is a unique opportunity to see something really spectacular and groundbreaking!

In Qatar for the first time, the Red Bull Flying Bach Ensemble is where high culture meets urban arts. The show brings together two completely different worlds – the classical (music by Johann Sebastian Bach) and the modern (street-savvy breakdancing). This live performance features the four time breakdancing champions, the Flying Steps, as they reignite the power of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier both visually and symbolically through dance.

With piano, harpsichord and electronic beats – plus head spins, power moves and freezes – the show will wow the audience! Sponsored by the Hilton Doha, this 70-minute show will take place at the Drama Theatre at Katara, both today and tomorrow, 26 September.

Christoph Hagel, the opera director said:

The moves of a breakdance crew are as cool as a fugue by Bach. From Croatia to Japan: Everybody can relate to it.”
