MEETING WITH VÍCTOR ULLATE IN TELEFÓNICA FOUNDATION

Last Monday May the 7th Master Víctor Ullate took part at the “Celebramos la Danza” (we celebrate the Dance) event within the framework of the exhibition #LaBailarinaDelFuturo (the future Dancer) at the Telefónica Foundation building. “Art is the calm for the soul. Dancing is necessary for the human being”, said the Spanish dancer with the greatest international projection of all times, whose Company celebrates this year #Ullate30AñosDeDanza (30 years).

 

On April the 29th the International Dance Day was celebrated and for this reason, and on the occasion of the exhibition The Dancer of the Future. From Isadora Duncan to Josephine Baker, the Telefónica Foundation received Víctor Ullate in its auditorium, teacher of great dancers and choreographer, whose company celebrates this year “30 years in Dance”.

In this meeting, moderated by the journalist Julio Bravo, also participated María Santoyo, the exhibition curator, and Joel Toledo, former dancer of the National Dance Company, who danced under the diretion of Ullate in the Community of Madrid Ballet and who is currently the Dance Adviser of  the Community of Madrid.

As the final touch, the audience enjoyed the premiere of an unseen piece of the Peter Pan ballet, performed by the students of the Víctor Ullate Foundation’s training project.

They all talked about Ullate’s career and the role of the Dance in the cultural field, where Telefónica Foundation has contributed with this exhibition that gives visilibity to this world and that claims the role of seven historical women pioneers who created new forms of expression and liberation of the female body in modern Dance.

“It obsesses me that my choreographies have a message and that they always have something to say. That they do not leave anyone indifferent. If there is no angel, the Dance remains empty”, said Ullate.
