The National Dance Company of Spain’s 2024 U.S. Tour in Chicago

Compañía Nacional de Danza, Spain’s premier national dance company, makes its Chicago debut with a trio of performances covering classical, neoclassical, and contemporary dance: “Sad Case,” “White Darkness” and “Passengers Within.”

Led by Artistic Director Joaquín De Luz, a world-renowned past principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Compañía Nacional de Danza will perform a mixed repertoire embracing classical to avant-garde:

  • White Darkness by CNdD’s former artistic director and choreographer Nacho Duato, a one-act ballet created as a requiem;
  • The satirical Sad Case by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot, which embodies the fiery, syncopated rhythms of Mexican mambo;
  • And Passengers Within, the latest creation by De Luz, set to music by Philip Glass.

The entire cast is full of an energy that just radiates.
