Spain’s National Dance Company returns after 14 years for a rare Seattle engagement. The company is internationally renowned for its expressively powerful and refined movement style exemplified in three classic works:
- White Darkness, a lush and virtuosic one-act ballet created as a requiem, is an exhilarating work by its former artistic director, choreographer Nacho Duato;
- The vivacious and satirical Sad Case, by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, embodies the fiery, syncopated rhythms of Mexican mambo;
- And, Passengers Within — the latest creation by choreographer Joaquín De Luz, set to music by Philip Glass — is inspired by people determined to question the status quo.
