Amanda Miller returns to London with her celebrated composition The Art of Fugue. The former resident choreographer with Ballett Frankfurt founded her own company in 1993 and is renowned for inventing hybrid forms of movement, creating 'bridges' between different eras and styles.
The Art of Fugue, made in 2000 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Bach's death, presents a sense of the whole work with a fantastic, flowing and dreamlike quality. The music is transposed into a series of images raising questions about chaos and order, the old and the new.
The company of nine outstanding dancers is joined on stage by musicians from the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, a world-renowned ensemble who perform Bach's score live on period instruments. www.pudc.org/
