Flying Pictures, what would pictures sound like if they were music?

For over two months, until the beginning of June, Berlin’s former train station, Hamburger Bahnhof, will host Flying Pictures, an artistic performance that involves different forms of art, giving life to a living masterpiece. 

Flying Pictures is the result of the collaboration of various artists, starting with the Urban Dance Company Flying Steps in Berlin, one of the most famous international dance companies thanks to their pharaonic productions, always coordinated by the creative director Vartan Bassil. The company will move to the notes of “Pictures at an exhibition” by the Russian composer Modest Petrovič Musorgskij. The main feature of this 1874 suite is that it is divided into fifteen parts, ten of which are inspired by paintings and watercolors by Viktor Hartmann, so The Flying Steps accompanies the viewer through the ten works, dancing on a multi-dimensional stage that can be seen from different points.

But don’t think it’s a trivial classical dance show, because the music was by the brothers and composers Vivan and Ketan Bhatti, making them contemporary and giving them a more acoustic and “urban” style. 

Last, but not least, perhaps the flagship of this production, are the sets designed by OSGEMEOS, the duo of artists that we have already had the pleasure of talking about here. For the occasion, the brothers Gustavo and Otavio Pandolfo have thought of enormous fantastic figures, always inspired by the works of Hartmann, and if in the evening they are part of the performance, during the day they are visible inside the museum in an exhibition dedicated to them.

Flying Pictures is open until June 2 and tickets are available online.
