Nexo

Choreography: Arantxa Sagardoy y Alfredo Bravo

Music: Igor Stravinski

Costume design: Anna Güell

Lighting: Paco Azorín

A choreography with a contemporary touch by Arantxa Sagardoy and Alfredo Bravo, which premiered at Madrid’s Teatros del Canal in October 2012.

The piece bears witness to the complexity of the dancers’ every move, as they enact an unsettling metamorphosis in the form of a ritual. This ‘ceremony’ seeks to grasp the youth, power and vitality of the human being. The ritual is the nexus – hence the title nexo – between an ever-changing, cyclic nature and the divide that separates a prior state from the attainment of a new state.

Nexo is an exaltation of the human being, accompanied by the music of Igor Stravinski The Rite of Spring. At a staggering pace, the piece illustrates the ephemeral power of youth, the body and its matter, as elements that bind the human state to its cyclic existence.
