Day 46_Moor’s Pavane

[Gentes del mundo, el coronavirus nos ha encerrado. Pero no sólo no podrá con nosotros, sino que vamos a aprovechar el encierro al máximo. Aquí va mi idea del día.]

José Limón no necesitó gran cosa.
Le bastaron cuatro personas. Cogió una vieja obra de Henry Purcell y construyó la historia de Otelo en un ballet breve que tituló La pavana del moro.
Es musical, es sorprendente y expresiva. Una obra redonda de apenas 20 minutos que refleja la importancia de este coreógrafo en la danza de hoy.

[People of the world, the Coronavirus has locked us up. But not only will it not be able to take us, but we will make the most of the lockdown. Here’s my idea for the day.]

José Limón didn’t need much.
Four people were enough for him. He took an old score by Henry Purcell and transformed the story of Othello into a short ballet titled Moor’s Pavane.
It is musical, it is surprising and expressive. A masterpiece of barely 20 minutes that reflects the importance of this choreographer in today’s dance.
