From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe:
Agility, but not enough heart
The intense, propulsive dances of Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato catch your breath -- but often fail to release it, leaving you struggling for air.

It’s not that his arrangements of hurling bodies -- arms breaking into wings here, palms shuddering like fans there, a library of splintered movement in between -- don’t astound with their speed and agility.... It’s just that the execution of the dances -- overflowing with nonstop permutations -- takes precedence over their heart.

From Marcia Siegel in the Boston Phoenix:
Building blocks
Nacho Duato, Jorma Elo, Marc Bamuthi Joseph

Nacho Duato’s Compañía Nacional de Danza 2, from Madrid, seems to think of itself as up-to-date, but for its two Boston performances it offered a three-part remix of Ailey-constructivist-fusion dancing with serious but invisible themes.
