About disTanz

Brief summary of the performance

Portugal’s choreography takes the dancers to the very limits of physical possibility, and often incorporates the “beat” of the Bach in entirely startling ways. Rarely have I seen a dense collection of movements parallel a score so closely. A single note emphatically played, and a foot might strike out like a momentary afterthought, or an arrow-straight body suddenly crumple. Portugal expands even small, inconspicuous gestures into something much bigger, continually making instinctive and fluid transitions from one movement into another

Filipe Porugal dance for a long time in Heinz Spoerli's Zürich Ballet, and his teachings are evident in his work.
