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 mented 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 La Fura dels Baus 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.
A free version of the Bauernkantate. A timeless treat. Burlesque. Comedy. Social criticism. The invitation to the most mundane pleasures. Together, they are concepts that seem far away from the musical expressions of ancient times. As encounters between different disciplines and styles of music, the crossed roads that blend with contrasting speeches in one motion.
Free Bach 212 is a show with interdisciplinary crossings where electronic music, multimedia image, flamenco and contemporary poetics want to give new meaning to modern audiences.
