Zaguán & Alento: Flamenco Ballet and Classic Spanish Dance
Why We Recommend it
Ballet Nacional de España (BNE) comes to Hong Kong for a renowned two-piece performance that showcases the company’s new aesthetic and stylistic approach following the success of their recovery of folkloric tradition and varied Spanish dance styles.
Zaguán is a flamenco ballet that seeks to portray transitional space from an array of perspectives. In this show, three young artists will showcase their personal dance vocabulary, approach and style. The company will also perform Soleá del Mantón by Blanca del Rey, one of the grand dames of Spanish flamenco.
Alento is presented as a living reflection of the style of Antonio Najarro, the company’s artistic director, as well as of his personal vision of classic Spanish dance. It is a reminder of his choreographic trajectory, inspired by the rhythmic and sensitive scores of renowned Argentinian composer and guitarist Fernando Egozcue.
