Extremely Pedestrian Chorales
Summerhall Festival - Bruford at Summerhall
Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
The commonplace experience and movement language of the pedestrian as an act of beauty, meaning and gentle comedy. Based on the sublime harmonies of JS Bach’s famous Chorales, it pitches them into our present day lives with just a dash of punk-ish irreverence. A beguiling mix of high and low art, it’s been described as: ‘Clever, funny, and thought-provoking’ ***** (Herald). ‘Perfectly capturing the rhythmic power and grandeur of the mighty JS Bach in all his exhilarating glory’ **** (Scotsman). ‘A Dadaist riposte to Strictly Come Dancing‘ (Guardian).
