Día Internacional de la Danza

Recordar a Noverre no es mirar al pasado, sino al futuro. Un bailarín que reivindicó la independencia de nuestro arte prescindiendo de pelucas y atuendos anacrónicos, convirtió la danza del siglo XVIII en una herramienta poderosa que ha atravesado épocas y grupos sociales.

Mejor mirar al futuro, como Jean-Georges Noverre. Estemos atentos a lo que nos traerán las próximas décadas, porque promete ser fascinante.

Remembering Noverre is not looking to the past. A dancer who reclaimed the independence of our Art, getting rid of wigs and anachronistic outfits, transformed the dance of the 17 Century into a tool that went through different periods and social groups. 

It is better to look to the future, like Jean-Georges Noverre. Let’s keep attentive to what the future decades will bring. It is supposed to be fascinating.
