Musical composition and possibilities of it’s rooming into dance and performance

The dancer's and musician's residences are a study of musical compositions in the context of
movement, performance and interpretation in contemporary dance. In the selection of specific
musical compositions – for the dance art of the key composer Johann Sebastian Bach – Concerto
for harpsichord / piano and chamber orchestra No.1 in D minor BWV 1052 and Chaconne from
violin Partita no. 2 d minor BWV 1004 adapted for solo piano by Feruccio Busoni, will view and
