Las Horas

A great choreographer is born: young, beautiful, bursting with energy and commitment, Tania Pérez-Salas wins the spectator over immeidately with the depth of her inspiration, mastery of structure and ability to convey emotion. This is the European premiere of works dating from 2000 and 2001 and based on texts by Octavio Paz and Alessandro Baricco. Dance that is impressive and totally accessible.
