Go Deeper

Go Spanish this weekend as the National Dance Company of Spain 2 performs at Annenberg.

Posted May 13th, 2009

The amazing Compania Nacional de Danza 2 (National Dance Company of Spain 2), under the direction and choreography of Nacho Duato, is gracing our fair city with performances from Thursday through Saturday (May 14 – 16) at the Zellerbach Theatre at the Annenberg Center (3680 Walnut Street). If you want to see what’s going on across the Atlantic, this is one of the best ballet-modern companies in the world. They make the impossible look easy and every movement, no matter how difficult, forms a compelling work of art. The second company is young, but they move in complete command, and never hurried–it’s almost like they take their time even when they’re flying through the air. Like much of Duato’s work, all the finishes are beautifully created images. Thursday night’s performance earned a long standing ovation. You can purchase tickets here.
