Ofrenda de sombras

Nacho Duato

Last year saw the four hundredth anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest painters of all time: Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez. Together with Rubens and Rembrandt, he was the most representative painter of the baroque period. His trajectory is unlimited by time and he is still modern today. With Ofrenda de Sombras, Duato wishes to pay homage to the great master, taking inspiration from one of his greatest works: Las Meninas. The choreographer creates a very personal world of private dreams and fantasy, which in its development approaches and departs from the story told in Velazquez’s painting, never failing to offer it as a reference to the spectator so that the source of inspiration is constantly present.
