To see a solo performance by José Navas is to experience just how far dance can go to stir your spirit and soothe your soul. For his new creation, he was captivated by the desire to translate Franz Schubert’s beloved song cycle into movement. Winterreise (Winter Journey), the composer’s final work before his death in 1829, is infused with operatic themes of tragedy that beautifully serve Navas’s own creative process as a maturing artist. This evocative performance elegantly intertwines the solo dancer with Francis Perron on piano and Jacques-Olivier Chartier as tenor.

BONUS! Post-performance chat: Join José Navas after the show on Wednesday, November 10 for a special post-performance chat to share your experience of the performance. The chat will take place in the Studio right after the show.
