José Navas/Compagnie Flak ‘S’

French Canadian dance maker José Navas comes to Article19 with a new work called ‘S’ along with his company Compagnie Flak.

We caught the show at the Coda Dance Festival in Norway back in October. For those of you that like your dance making and performance pure then this is as pure as it gets. It’s all movement all the time carried out by eight top class dancers and one live musician (on the Piano).

The company say this much about the work;

“After captivating CODA audiences with Anatomies in 2007, José Navas here returns with his new piece S – a stunning meditation in movement inspired by Erik Satie’s immortal music Gymnopédies and Gnossiennes.

Eight dancers, stunning in their presence and vulnerability, present a choreography with the precision of calligraphy and structured like a musical score to Satie’s ethereal melodies, performed live by the acclaimed French pianist Claire Chevallier.

An abstract and organic work. An encounter with grace.”

The company is regularly on tour in Canada and Europe so you should be able to catch them in performance with this and a whole host of similar works.
