García and Barberá’s first work for Ballet Hispanico uses contemporary dance to evoke the sights and sounds of the cultural revolution in 1980s Madrid known as “La Movida.” Drawing upon that time’s need for creative expression and individuality, the work recreates the memory of one night of freedom, exploration, and invention lived by a young group of friends.
A vueltas con los ochenta was made possible in part by Spain Culture New York - Consulate General of Spain and Spain Arts & Culture.
