Program - "Leap to Tall", "Car-Men" and "Place" - created by Donna Uchizono, Jiri Kylian and Mats Ek.
Dancers: Mijail Baryshnikov, Ana Laguna, Hristoula Harakas, Jodi Melnick
From September 2nd to 5th at the Teatro Español (Príncipe, 25) Madrid.
'An Evening of Dance' is more than a standard performance, Baryshnikov’s proposal is a very unusual night where dance gets a special solemnity. Names of the highest intellectual ballet world will be present: the once first ballerina of the Cullberg Ballet, Spanish dancer Ana Laguna; the great Swedish creator of the last 30 years, ex director of the Cullberg and Ana Laguna’s partner, Mats Ek; and Jiri Kylian, another great master of the choreographic creation, ex director of the Nederlands Dans Theater, company that is present these days in Madrid as it is scheduled at the Teatro Real.
To this magnificent reunion one will also find Kylian’s work 'Car-Men', ……more (Spanish)
Does anyone know more about this program or has somebody seen any of the pieces scheduled? I would be very grateful to get more info about.
PS: I was not sure what was the right place to post this, I made a search and found entries in both “Ballet” and "Contemporary” for Baryshnikov so I put it here “Ballet “and “Europe” but if you think it to be more appropriate in Modern/Contemporary Dance, of course, please move it.
