The National Dance Company (CND) will intervene Zarzuela Theater in Madridfrom July 7th to 17th, where he will perform a triple program bringing together three iconic choreographers of contemporary dance: “Big gap”by the Dutch master Hans van Manen; ‘Polyphony’by Christopher Wheeldon and the ‘DSCH concert’by Alexei Ratmansky, to music by Dmitri Shostakovich.

On this occasion, the program offers a series of scenic and aesthetic proposals and reviews the work of three key authors in understanding contemporary dance. At works “Big gap” Y’polyphony“ were presented by the CND last February at the Palacio de Festivales de Cantabria in Santander with great success.

In “Grosse Fuge”, Van Manen’s creation based on music by Beethoven, four pairs of dancers project a tight and sensual choreography in an all-white staging. Wheeldon’s Polyphonia, with music by György Ligeti, immerses the gaze in the freedom of movement to reveal a dance between infinite lines of beauty.

At the end of the program, the CND will stage ‘DSCH concert’by Alexei Ratmansky, on music by Dmitri Shostakovich, in which the initials DSCH of the title refer to four notes corresponding in German to the initials of the composer’s name, in a delicious symbiosis between music and dance that both illuminates and highlights the personalities of the Dancer.

With the musical performance of Maestro Manuel Coves at the helm of ORCAM and Mario Prisuelos at the piano in the pieces “Polyphonia” and “Concerto DSCH”, the performances will take place on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 12th, 13th, 14th July instead. 15 and 16 (at 8:00 p.m.) and on Sundays, 10 and 17 July at 6:00 p.m
