Barcelona's Grec arts festival has its first performance for this year at the eponymous Teatre Grec, featuring the renowned Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company

Choreography, lighting, wardrobe and set design: Jacopo Godani.

The Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company opens this year's festival Grec at the Teatre Grec (an open-air theatre on Montjuïc designed in the style of a ancient Greek performance space) with choreographies by the company's director, Jacopo Godani, an artist who controls all aspects of the shows he puts on, and who presents a new, vibrant choreographic language based on virtuosity. He brings three pieces to the Grec: 'Metamorphers', based on Béla Bártok's chamber work 'String quartet nº 4'; 'Echoes from a restless soul', which explores two fragments from the triptych by Maurice Ravel 'Gaspard de la Nuit'; and 'Moto Perpetu', a piece that involves a great physicality and mathematical precision which starts with a neoclassical matrix and evolves towards contemporary forms to the sound of electronic rhythms.
