Nacho Duato

Kaburías is a solo inspired by Leo Bouwer's guitar music. The choreographer recalls the spell of flamenco employing the confrontation between two worlds: that of Kabuki and that of Flamenco ("bulerias": traditional Andalusian song and dance).

  • World premiere by Compañía Nacional de Danza: within the Festival Internacional de Danza of Itálica, Seville (Spain), June 22nd 1991

This solo is structured in two parts: in the first part, the dancer’s movements remind us of the world of Kabuki. And, in the second part, one can appreciate the influence of the art of flamenco, accentuated by the wardrobe (skirts and flounces).
