Crush Pas de Deux

A trio from Na Floresta – by renowned Spanish choreographer, Nacho Duato. Created during Duato’s nature-inspired period of the 1990s, this is a seamless yet highly technical partnership of a female and two male dancers. It is set to the music of Heitor Villa-Lobos and arranged by Wagner Tiso.
A duet from Duende – also by Duato. Duende is a Spanish word referring to mythological forest creatures, such as pixies and elves – and the personal charm and magical qualities possessed by certain people. Claude Debussy’s flute solo, “Syrinx,” creates the perfect atmosphere for this dance conversation for two.
