José Carlos Martínez's Introduction
José Carlos Martínez dances and with him dance is not only a form of artistic discipline, it is also a constant challenge of the laws of physics. He strives to demonstrate that gravity is relative or that a body can turn on impossible axes. Thanks to this peculiar combination of talent and virtuosity, he has shown to be almost like an interpreter. In these last few years, his career has taken a turn towards creation. In December 2010, the Spanish Ministry of Culture announced his appointment as the Director of Spain’s National Dance Company (Compañia Nacional de Danza), a post he will take on as from September 2011.
