With this short piece, Roberto Zappalà begins the artistic love act that he wants to dedicate to the great composer Johann Sebastian Bach. No dramaturgy, no intellectualism, only a close relationship between music and dance. On the other hand, Zappalà has taken the thought of Charles Baudelaire: “Glorifying the cult of the image and aesthetics is my goal even before the meaning”.

The creation represents one of the phases of a journey articulated in different moments / episodes: x2, x3, which are also the respective numbers of dancers on stage, which will lead to the 2020 production Rifare Bach
