La Fura dels Baus – Free Bach 212

Festival d’Europa Photo Gallery







La Fura dels Baus is eccentricity, innovation, adaptation, rhythm, evolution and transgression. The incessant curiosity and the need to explore new artistic trends have developed, through a process of collective creation, a unique language, style and aesthetic. Nowadays, this is called “Furan language”, which has been implemented in different artistic genres, such as opera, cinema and large-scale performances. The ability to bind and adapt carnality and mysticism, nature and artifice, rudeness and sophistication, primitivism and technology, in every performance, has given the Spanish company its international success and prestige.

Free Bach 212 is a performance-concert of music and dance. It is based on BauernKantate (Peasant Cantata) BWV 212 by J.S. Bach, performed by the baroque ensemble Divina Mysteria, adding flamenco reprises by Mariola Membrives and combined with electronic music sound effects. The videowork veils the musicians, the bailaor, the singers and gives sense and perspective to the piece.
