Vartan Bassil, choreographer of Red Bull Flying Bach, continues his exclusive blog from the Copenhagen stop on their European tour...
Yes, we did it – the first two shows in Copenhagen are over and it went awesome!
The Concert Hall is a great location – the organ pipes in the background look so cool. Especially in combination with our visuals, the piano, harpsichord, and stage.
And the best of it is that the audience are very close to the stage, so we got an immediate reaction. We were a bit nervous about how the crowd would react, but it was the same as in Germany.
After the first moves, we broke the ice and there was enthusiastic applause during the performances. At the end of the show we got the standing ovation that we were hoping for. They went so nuts that we even did some solo moves afterwards. I don't know, but the local guys said, that the emotional reaction of the crowd is really uncommon. Therefore we are really proud.
A big thumbs up goes to our new harpsichord player Jia Lim. It was her premiere and she did great.
Today we have a bit of time for shopping. Copenhagen is full of cool shops with stylish clothes. Our Flying Steps member Lil Steph is from Denmark and she gave us many insider tips about where to go. And also Benny who is part of the Red Bull Flying Bach ensemble lived in Copenhagen some time ago. Now we try to keep this energy for the next show.
Red Bull Flying Bach will perform two more nights in Copenhagen before travelling to Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Turkey. Until December the ensemble will perform more than 50 shows.
