Bach (2004, 2016)

Maria Muñoz, Mal pelo

Bach is a piece based on a selection from J.S. Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier that María Muñoz premiered in 2004 and has since performed over a hundred times all over the world.
María Muñoz works now on passing on and reinterpreting this solo with the Italian performer and creator Federica Porello.

In Bach, the discourse is expressed only through the body and through the music of Bach. An approach to J.S. Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier, in which the performer dances to preludes played live and to the memory of fugues danced in silence.

First informal presentation at L’animal a l’esquena 19/12/2015

The premiere of Bach interpreted by Federica Porello was on the 20th, 21st of February 2016 at the Mercat de les flors, Barcelona.
