World-class modern dance performance at APAC this weekend!




Meet Michael Trusnovec, Guest Choreographer for AXCBT's


premiering April 1 at APAC!





Michael's new work, Minimal Complex, will premiere on 

April 1, 2023, @ 8pm.


Bauhaus artist Paul Klee transformed Johann Sebastian Bach’s music structure into two dimensional graphic visualizations. Minimal Complex explores and interprets an abstracted, four hand version of three movements from Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier. With a focus on the architectural genius, harmonies, counterpoints and pure simplicity of the music, four dancers become a physical layer of geometric patterns, movement, and breath.
