Fado, Rituals and Shadows (D.C. PREMIERE)
 
"Mr. Wellenkamp knows how to distill feeling and pour it out onstage."--The New York Times
 
Companhia Portuguesa de Bailado Contemporâneo was founded in 1997 by Vasco Wellenkamp (a former choreographer for the Gulbenkian Ballet) and Graça Barroso. Over the last 15 years, the company has premiered more than 50 works and toured to Brazil, Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, the United States, China, and Israel. Jan Linkens, Artistic Director for the Netherlands Dans Theater, invited Vasco Wellenkamp to choreograph Fado, Rituals and Shadows, a work about the national music genre of Portugal. The score features the beautiful voice of Carla Pires. The poetry of the text she sings represents a sense of abandonment and emotion, a ritual without time or defined characters.
