2 You Maestro premiered in Madrid’s Teatros del Canal in December 2008. The key qualities of a maestro are dedication, patience, passion, knowledge and generosity. Here is a piece that is alive with generosity, affection, giving and taking, knowing and learning, and love of the ephemeral art that is dance. This is the story of our maestro Víctor Ullate, who took on a disciple, Eduardo Lao, who became a maestro himself.
2 You Maestro is a tribute to a figure who played a key role in the history of dance: Víctor Ullate. His career as a dancer and choreographer has given rise to a list of followers to perpetuate his work. And among his disciples was Eduardo Lao, the Company’s current Art Director.
Lao takes up fragments of the work of the man who guided him and pays homage to his maestro in the best way he can: by creating dance. 2 You Maestro is a stroll through the universe of Víctor Ullate; it involves the privilege of beholding creation. The Company’s twenty-year history is a miraculous landmark and should be celebrated as such. It was in honour of the Company’s twentieth anniversary that this piece was conceived, as a gift from the disciple to the master. And such a gift would not have been possible were it not for the generosity of a man who took the time to learn and then to teach.
