José Navas – Winterreise

José Navas embodies Franz Schubert’s famous Winterreise song cycle to recount this journey in movement to the edge of winter. Accompanied on stage by a singer and a pianist, he creates a stunningly beautiful choreographic recital.

José Navas has devoted part of his career to creating and performing solos, a form of which he is an acknowledged master and that made his reputation as an outstanding dancer and choreog-rapher. This time, he turns to a work from the classical music repertoire to frame his dance. In his characteristic physical language incorporating both classical and contemporary lines, Navas gives himself over completely to the essence of Schubert’s journey. Channeling the live music into movement, he portrays the spirit of a man alone in the winter of his life, contemplating the melancholic beauty of nature. A poignant piece, charged with humanity and pure emotion, in which the maturity and refinement of this exceptional dancer shine out and go straight to the heart.
