Las Cantatas Eufóricas [The Euphoric Cantatas]
A painting in motion, a party, a pagan celebration, a Mass where the sacred and the pagan coexist to dance to the music of German composer Bach.
The sacred and the pagan coexist in this singular piece that allows you to dance to Bach’s music in the euphoria of the 21st century. A painting in motion, a party, a pagan celebration, a Mass. A show to let yourself be swept away by.
