Founder and artistic director of Compagnie Flak, José Navas creates abstract group pieces and contemporary Ballet pieces as well as dances in his solo shows, charged with emotion. Choreographer in residence for Ballet BC since the summer of 2010, he successfully delivered his first work on pointe and the creation of a new version of Giselle figures in his upcoming projects. His work has been presented in 40 countries in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Choreographer: José Navas
Music: Gnossiennes and Gymnopédies by Erik Satie
A tender solo, Villanelle, sets the stage for S when eight dancers, stunning in their presence and vulnerability, present a choreography structured like a musical score, likening these men and women to instruments crafted by Stradivarius. This abstract and organic work is an encounter with grace.
