Time Out says

This piece for four dancers, directed by Greek choreographer Christos Papadopoulos, stems from the study of the strict structure and artistic complexity of classical musical composition, which are transported to the stage in a visual way. The central rules of instrumental music are applied to a different form of art: dance. The body becomes a visual version of the musical instrument, and the score becomes the choreography itself. Each body on stage tries to follow the rhythm or the melodic lines; sometimes it hones in on a single musical instrument and sometimes on two, focusing the viewer's attention on the wonderful architecture of classical music and its harmonic logic. The result is a piece of great sobriety and beauty and an intelligent attempt to discover our automatic physical response to musical stimuli.

Coreography: Christos Papadopoulos. Music: Johann Sebastian Bach.
