NAC Premiere

NAC Presentation

Approximately 50 minutes with no intermission.

Catalan dancer-choreographer María Muñoz’s eloquent, evocative solo is pure movement. Embracing Glenn Gould’s recording of J.S. Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier, she dances on the edge of a fragile trance. Muñoz’s superb presence and singular personality draw us into her concentrated attempts to ’catch’ the music, swirling around in the arms of an invisible partner, or breaking into a sudden syncopated run. Self-effacing, yet emphatically defining the space around her, Muñoz elegantly recreates the joyous formal lightness of the musical notes; her body transformed into one more element in the sublime score.

Co-producers : Teatro Real (Madrid), Teatre Lliure (Barcelona).

“Touch the air. Hold something and let it evaporate in your hands. That was the kind of elusive,  llusive dancing María Muñoz gave us. I loved this solo.”
