Dance: Energy, fire and sex

The NZ Business Review
March 12, 2004

At the heart of Spanish dance is the bullfight, with the male dancer the stylish toreador and the woman the bull, almost as macho but always vulnerable.

The male dancer is focused and controlling while the woman is given to passionate and fiery display.

Take the Ballet Nacional de Espana, for example. Forget about delicate, skeletal figures, tottering en pointe and encased in nylon tutus. Instead think of a cry, similar to the call on to a marae, the hand movements of traditional Indian and Indonesian dance, and the compelling and captivating rhythms of Spanish flamenco music, and you have some idea.
