CND2 - Rassemblement. Nacho Duato

CND2 REPERTOIRE ARCHIVE 90/10

Rassemblement. Dancer: Randy Castillo
  • Choreography: Nacho Duato
  • Music: Toto Bissainthe (Rasambléman)
  • Sets: Walter Nobbe
  • Costumes: Nacho Duato
  • Light Design: Nicolás Fischtel (A.A.I.) according to the original design by Dick Limdsctröm.
  • Staging: Lena Wennergren Juras
  • World premiere by Cullberg Ballet at Hjalmar Bergman Theater, Orebro, Sweden, February 27th, 1990. Premiere by Compañía Nacional de Danza at the Teatro de la Zarzuela, December 13th, 1991.

This time Duato has turned to Haiti and the music of Toto Bissainthe, with drive and sway. It has inspired Duato in the crisp, clear-cut style of Jardí Tancat. Four couples, in shades of grey working clothes, start calmly and build upto an arresting finish, with the word “liberté” repeated in the song.

Rassemblement is a creation which gradually, through the liberating powers of music and dance, proves to be an impressive, thrilling and audience affecting appeal for human rights. These songs are mostly slaves’ songs from the Voodoo cult. They express the daily life of the slaves, their longing for Africa, not as a geographical reality, but as a mythical land of freedom. They express their resistance and their refusal: resistance to the colonist, rejection of his politics, his religion, his culture and his language.

During the history of Haiti, the face of the master has often changed. Capitalism, developing in Haiti, has transformed the sense of Voodoo. The ethnographer came first, and then the tourist for whom folklore was produced with revived exotic excitement. Voodoo, which for the poor exploited peasants, had been a celebration of the African roots of their increasingly more unbearable way of life, became a “religion”, one of the tools of power.

The birth of Voodoo in a land of exile, the first common language among slaves of different ethnic backgrounds, was a vital creative moment, a cultural unification which was to transform the world: an opening for the confined. That is the moment we sing about. Using the traditional music of Haiti we meet with other musical forms to open a way towards a contemporary music that knows no frontiers.

CND2 - Na Floresta. Nacho Duato

CND2 REPERTOIRE ARCHIVE 90/10

Na Floresta. Dancer: Marina Jiménez
  • Choreography: Nacho Duato
  • Music: Heitor Villa-Lobos/Wagner Tisso
  • Scenery: Walter Nobbe
  • Costumes: Nacho Duato
  • Light Design: Nicolás Fischtel
  • World premiered by the Netherlands Dans Theater 2 at the AT&T Danstheater in Den Hague, 15th February, 1990. Premiered by Compañía Nacional de Danza at the Teatro del Generalife, in Granada, 24th June, 1993.

Na Floresta a magnificent triptych praising the beauty of the Amazonian rain forest, draws the very essence of its splendour from folklore. A passionate energy circulates within this work made up of sequences full of both substance and fluidity. Its success at its 1990 premiere was phenomenal. A plotless work to Villa-Lobos music intended to communicate an intimacy and a feeling for nature that is greater than our contact with other beings. "Nacho Duato has that rare quality that consists of being able to express things through the voices of simplicity, restraint and circumspection when it comes to expressing emotion".

CND2 - L'Amoroso. Nacho Duato

CND2 REPERTOIRE ARCHIVE 90/10

L'Amoroso. Dance partner
  • Choreography: Nacho Duato
  • Music: Venetian & Neapolitan music (XVI and XVII centuries)
  • Sets: Walter Nobbe
  • Costumes: Nacho Duato
  • Light design: Nicolás Fischtel (A.A.I.)
  • World premiere by Compañía Nacional de Danza 2 at Teatro de Madrid on May 21, 2004.

L’Amoroso is Nacho Duato’s first piece created expressly for the Compañía Nacional de Danza 2.

The choreographer uses a selection of concerts of viola da gamba from the Italian baroque. The soft, artful music and the freshness and youth of the dancers inspire Duato to create a dynamic and vital atmosphere on stage.

CND2 - Kol Nidre. Nacho Duato

CND2 REPERTOIRE ARCHIVE 90/10

Kol NIdre. Pareja de danza en escena
  • Choreography: Nacho Duato
  • Music: John Tavener, Arvo Pärt and John Zorn
  • Scenography and Costumes: Nacho Duato
  • Lighting Design: Joop Caboort
  • Premiered by the Compañía Nacional de Danza 2 at the Teatro de Madrid, on 22nd January 2009.

Kol Nidre is the name of the declaration recited in the synagogue, prior to commencement of the evening service of Yom Kippur. Its name is taken from the initial letters of the declaration and it is a time to reflect and forgive.

These are the building blocks taken by Duato in his new creation for the Compañía Nacional de Danza 2. It is a more introspective, spiritual work that reflects on the situation of the youngest during armed conflict: those known as “war children”.

CND2 - Alone, for a Second. Nacho Duato

CND2 REPERTOIRE ARCHIVE 90/10

Alone, for a second. Bailarina en escena
  • Choreography: Nacho Duato
  • Music: Erik Satie
  • Sets and Costumes:Nacho Duato
  • Light Design: Nicolás Fischtel
  • World premiered by the Nederlands Dans Theater at the AT&T Danstheater, The Hague, 9th September, 1993. Premiered by the Compañía Nacional de Danza 2 at Teatro de la Maestranza, Seville, 14th November, 2002.

In Alone for a Second, Nacho Duato consciously breaks down new ground in search of the still side of life, the introspective. The choreography has a cyclic structure, thus evoking the impression of a twilight state.
