Tania Pérez-Salas, Artistic Director
A New Work
 
"Muñoz is a compelling performer."--The Guardian (London)
 
"What's most distinctive about Pérez-Salas's work is its imaginative, extravagant theatricality."--The Boston Globe
 
María Muñoz, Artistic Director of Spain's Mal Pelo dance company, brings the U.S. premiere of her evocative 2004 solo piece, Bach. Performed to Glenn Gould's recording of J.S. Bach's "The Well-Tempered Clavier," Muñoz "draws us into a series of concentrated attempts to ‘catch' the music," says London's The Guardian. She "sweeps herself around as if in the arms of an invisible partner, or breaks into a sudden syncopated run." La Vanguardia raves that "Muñoz recreates the joyous and formal lightness of the notes in the score, as if her body were just one more element in the stave."
 
The second half of the program brings "one of the premier modern dance companies in Mexico" (The Washington Post). Last at the Kennedy Center as part of Celebrate Mexico 2010, Tania Pérez-Salas Compañía de Danza returns with a brand-new work to be announced. Praised for her "vivid visual imagination" by the New York Times, Artistic Director Tania Pérez-Salas is known for her captivating, arresting, and highly emotive choreography, not to mention the unique use of props and dramatic lighting in her works.
