Benjamin Millepied choreographed L.A. Dance Project in this monochrome performance set to a score by JS Bach. Shot in a crisp and bright monochrome, Chaconne is a co-production with Royal Ballet Flanders. Millepied explains the conceptual and technical processes behind this startling work, which uses a tonally rich score from German baroque composer J.S. Bach:
"Bach's compositions have managed to transcend time. His music touches at the deepest parts of us without being purposefully melancholic or romantic. Its architecture is some of the most complex in music history. The choreography, which responds to the music, is meant to be cohesive with the score, to further reveal its inner voice—to run with it, display the complexity, and sometimes let it breathe."
