JOSÉ NAVAS | WINTERREISE
Information on the activity
February 8, 2020 to February 22, 2020
Sublime encounter between Navas and Schubert!
José Navas has devoted part of his career to creating and performing solos, a form of which he is an acknowledged master and that made his reputation as an outstanding dancer and choreog-rapher.
This time, he turns to a work from the classical music repertoire to frame his dance. In his characteristic physical language incorporating both classical and contemporary lines, Navas gives himself over completely to the essence of Schubert’s journey. Channeling the live music into movement, he portrays the spirit of a man alone in the winter of his life, contemplating the melancholic beauty of nature. A poignant piece, charged with humanity and pure emotion, in which the maturity and refinement of this exceptional dancer shine out and go straight to the heart.
