Following the successful productions “Flying Bach” and “Flying Illusion”, the Berlin-based Flying Steps present a new production. In cooperation with the Nationalgalerie and director Udo Kittelmann “Flying Pictures” celebrated its premiere in April 2019 at the Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum of Contemporary Art - Berlin. Staged by Flying Steps and famous Brazilian street artists Osgemeos, “Flying Pictures” combines elements of art, music and dance performance to revamp Modest Mussorgsky’s classic composition.
What would pictures sound like if they were music? What would they look like if they were brought to life by dancers? And what happens when the artists of their time inspire each other across the boundaries of genres and merge their art? "Flying Pictures" continues the idea of mutual inspiration and the interaction of different fields of art.
"The Hamburger Bahnhof is a place of movement. “Pictures at an exhibition” is about creative movement. We have a perfect symbiosis with this production," concludes Udo Kittelmann, Director of the Nationalgalerie. “Flying Pictures” is a project in cooperation with the Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Flying Steps and Semmel Concerts.
Available for international engagements at festivals and in museums. Want to read more? We introduce the project in our annual magazine “Showbiz Culture”.
