Gnawa
The celebrated Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato created this world premiere expressly for HSDC. Set to evocative Spanish and North African sounds, Gnawa captivates with its percussive power and sensual grace, combining the spirituality and organic rhythms from the Mediterranean.

…both fearsome in its drive and seductively hypnotic in its use of patterning, design and gesture.
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times, April 2005

It is beautiful and arresting, as hypnotic, befuddling, sensual and wildly intoxicating…Duato's gifts include a seemingly unlimited ability to blend tradition and novelty, the familiar and the unpredictable, in works that glide along on their smooth, almost inevitable course, just as they startle and mystify.
Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune, April 2005

Nacho Duato (Choreographer) was born in Valencia, Spain, in 1957 and trained with the Rambert School in London, Maurice Béjart's Mundra School in Brussels and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center in New York. In 1980 Duato joined the Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm, and a year later Jirí Kylián brought him to the Nederlands Dans Theater in Holland, where he was named resident choreographer in 1988. Since June 1990, Duato has been artistic director of Compañía Nacional de Danza (Spain), where he has created several works, including Concierto Madrigal, Opus Piat, Empty, Coming Together, Mediterrania, Cautiva and Tabulae. In 1998, the Spanish government awarded Duato the Golden Medal for Merit in Fine Arts.

Karen and Peter Lennon are the Exclusive Underwriters of Gnawa.
