Red Bull Flying Bach to Debut in Chicago

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

This summer, Red Bull Flying Bach lands in Chicago, making its U.S. debut in an exclusive Chicago engagement after three seasons of sold-out performances around the world. Featuring Berlin-based dance crew The Flying Steps, four-time break dance world champions, Red Bull Flying Bach combines contemporary hip-hop power moves with live classical music. Red Bull Flying Bach runs for six performances only at the historic Civic Opera House, 20 N. Wacker Drive, June 20 – 29.

The show itself, 70 minutes in length, features the seven break dancers of The Flying Steps along with contemporary Swedish dancer Anna Holmström in a lively series of vignettes, each showing off the multi-talented dancers’ strengths, including a dazzling array of breaking, popping and locking, flares, head spins, hand spins, footwork, acrobatics and unison work. A loose storyline follows the dancers in the rehearsal studio as they prepare for a major competition. The inner conflicts among the group melt away when a new girl enters the studio and the dynamic completely changes. Red Bull Flying Bach is choreographed by Flying Steps Artistic Director and dancer, Vartan Bassil. Red Bull Flying Bach has sold out theaters in Austria, Australia, Canada, Chile, Germany, Iceland, Japan, Russia and Sweden. For ticket information, visit To learn more about The Flying Steps, visit
