"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."

Tania Pérez-Salas, praised for her "vivid visual imagination" by the New York Times, is one of Mexico's most accomplished contemporary dancers and choreographers. Made in Mexico XX is a new work, featuring interwoven images rooted in Pérez-Salas's perspective as a Mexican artist with music representing a collage of Mexican composers. Founded in 1994, her dance company is known for its visual imagery, often making use of props and dramatic lighting. The company made its Kennedy Center debut in 2008 with The Hours and Anabiosis, and returned in 2010 with three works: Fourteen Sixteen, The Waters of Forgetfulness, and Ex-stasis.

Performance Timing: Part One - 50 min.; Intermission - 20 min.; Part Two - 35 min.
