An ensemble of all female dancers presented a variety of works from the past decade, including a segment from the 2009 production of Lorca (choreograhy by Juan Ogalla) as well as a world premiere of Que Es El Amor? (Buleria) - choreography by Ana Morales. All of the work held the signature power and relentless rhythmic drive that Enrique’s own choreography (Latidos - World Premeire) and the onstage musical accompaniment, embodies from start to finish.
Prolonged periods of casual concert-like musical interludes gave the program a necessary pacing that allowed the dance to linger long after the dancers had left the stage. Atmospheric vocals and passionate musical ensemble work gave the event the kind of wholistic, integrated, and skillfully brilliant environment one has come to expect from the company.
