Berlin Ballet

An avant-garde dance piece choreographed
by Antonio Gomes and commissioned by Bertelsmann for performance in Berlin.

The opening to the work was a massive visual backdrop featuring two dancers. They dance to a symphonic score performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The piece continued with a fusion of fractal video images, motion controlled video samples (of the dancers), plus a live dance troupe.

Solo operatic voices were combined with 60 piece choir, orchestra and urban/ethnic percussion.

A short video of part of the recording sessions at Abbey Road can be viewed below.
