Whitney Casal’s Dance Performance Reel

Music by Ryan Davis

 

Reward of the City

Reward of the City is a site specific piece created during residency with Danzad Danzad Malditos (Carmen Larraz) in Pamplona, Spain. It was performed August 17, 2019.

Based in the physicality brought about by the people and environment of the city. Inspired also by the colors, customs and tenderness of the paintings by Marc Chagall, and the dream-like images of Remedios Varo. The piece weaves physical and emotional lines between the dancers and public, between bodies and affects, to give space to an energetically charged choreography.

Direction by Cruz Isael Mata. Performance by Lucia Burguette, Whitney Casal, Veronica Grasso, Diego Pazó, Martin López, and Paula Santos.
