Featured Choreographer of the Month
As a pupil of many groundbreaking choreographers of the 20th century — Martha Graham, Maurice Béjart, Alvin Ailey, Mats Ek, and Jiří Kylián — Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato has established his creative path by fusing his learning experiences with his creative urgencies. He soon realized that dance is not just entertainment but a “wanting” transformative experience for those who create it and those who watch it. In this interview with Dance ICONS, Inc., Duato shares his intimate artistic wisdom and compares his past work in Berlin, Germany, and his current position in St. Petersburg, Russia.
