To Bach’s Mass in B minor, ten dancers move between the Baroque and the present

With her passion for Baroque dance, French choreographer Béatrice Massin is sometimes called ‘a musician of space’. Her latest creation Mass B – to excerpts from Bach’s Mass in B minor, partly rearranged by sound artist Emmanuel Nappey – is a carefully balanced interplay of Baroque and contemporary dance. The result is an energetic dialogue between the individual and the group: the Art of the Fugue, but in dance.
