“The art of not looking back” by Hofesh Shechter.
“Erde” by Nacho Duato.
The image I have in my mind is this huge tree. When I move is almost like the roots are coming out of the floor
Nacho is extremely musical. For me his ballets are the perfect symbiosis of music and dance and I think the idea of the piece and the way that Nacho is interacting the music besides the choreography, makes it a coherent piece.
“Progressive” is a good word to describe this work and this evening. I think it’s nice to see something that is happening in the world in a form of art. It is a distressing theme, but it comes also with a message of hope, that we can still do something about it.
