Triple Bach

Seh Yun Kim

The music itself is the main inspiration behind this ballet. Bach wanted the number three to feature significantly in this piece of music in different ways. Naturally, then, the number three features in the choreography also. It starts off with an introduction danced by three couples. Later, in Act 2, each couple dances one of three different comic duets. As the choreography aims at creating a ballet for young dancers later wishing to join the company, it begins with classical, almost academic ballet movements, shifting into neoclassical movements. The piece then incorporates increasingly complex movements as it progresses.
