If you enjoy dance then you should not miss out on the soon to be showing dance performance from Víctor Ullate and Eduardo Lao in Madrid. The show is slightly unusual in that is based on the rhythms of the body and takes forms and movements from many different popular dance styles. A large number of different genres of dance are to be included in the show, but in a way that is free and with plenty of sensitivity.
The dance performance has been described as profound and serves as a tribute to dance itself. The “plot” follows the lives of the two well known dancers from their very early experiences to their lives as experienced and professional performers. The unusual nature of the show has attracted plenty of attention and tickets for it are selling fast. It is being held at the Teatros del Canal which is easily accessible by bus or by metro.
