In his latest film, a collaboration with choreographer Aïdan Carberry, choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied tackles the sound of music—JS Bach’s Prelude No. 1, in particular—within an earthy historical home that reflects the German composer’s own era, while the dance is injected with modern moves and gestures.
Speaking about working with Aïdan Carberry, Millepied says, “Being used to seeing Aidan dance to hip hop, and watching him dancing to Bach, allows a different level of rhythm, sophistication and subtlety. That was really exciting for me.”
