The Teatros del Canal presents the dancer Israel Galván in its Sala Roja on 22 and 23 December, with El amor brujo, in which the Sevillian artist approaches the classic by Manuel de Falla, which is also one of the emblems of Spanish choreographic literature.
With his characteristic conceptual stage language, Israel Galván confronts a ballet that is, in its origin, very narrative. As the dancer explained, it all came about as a result of a press interview, in which he was asked if it was part of his plans to perform this title. And his curiosity was aroused, because that indelible music, which was created to serve a story that talks about the harassment that, since death, has kept the spectre of an abuser alive in Candela, presented him with great possibilities. However, Galván’s performance moves away from the monumentality of the orchestra: the dancer starts from the piano version of the work, and evokes, with a naked stage language, the mystical airs and the rituals of witchcraft: “I have tried a cruder, unorchestrated, dance-body witch love, calling for those spirits to enter into me,” he says.
