Grand, stately music. Chic, sophisticated ladies. Energetic, powerful men.

Bach’s music capturing the hearts of the audience even before dance begins; the masculine power of the male dancers, usually just sporadically interspersed in the feminine classic pieces; costumes designed after European simplicity and subtlety; and acrobatic solos and corps dancers. These are the exemplifying four merits matching with the special traits in this contemporary piece by Heinz Spoerli. All Shall Be draws on pure athleticism. The choreographer specializes in modern interpretation of classic works, like his all-new Giselle. He also exquisitely dramatizes stories in dance and mystifies backdrop with mirrors and mind-boggling lighting effects to present the audience with a rare fantasy.
