Dancing with Bach: in Collaboration with Baroque Cellist Louise King


                                Gympie Civic Centre

Contemporary ballet with live classical music


Lucid Dance Theatre is delighted to present their third full length (60 min) work ‘Dancing with Bach’.

Initially created with the support of the Judith Wright Centre, Fresh Ground Residency

‘Dancing with Bach’ performed to sell out audiences in Brisbane and Corooy. 

The simplicity of its construction, the richness of the live cello and the intimacy between the dancers and musician captivated audiences. Rarely do audiences have the opportunity to see dance works performed with live music and even less often is dance so beautifully integrated onstage with the musician.


Drawing inspiration from Bach’s beautifully evocative Cello Suites, the work weaves a thread

through the emotional, artful and somewhat mysterious life of Bach in order to explore the

inspiration behind these arousing works. 


Choreographed by Louise Deleur, renowned for her captivating Ballet based Contemporary works, along with the beautiful tones of the cello executed by internationally renowned Baroque Cellist Louise King and with an intimate cast of dancers, the scene is set for an inspiring collaboration of music and dance.
