EYAS Dance Project: Contemporary Dance from Spain

Spanish contemporary dance company EYAS Dance Project presents 2 works: “Júpiter+Jaguar” and a new commissioned work inspired by the Former Residence’s garden project “Around Pollinators.”

In this collaboration, the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C. commissioned a unique work inspired by the Around Pollinators garden installation. The company will also present the work Jupiter+Jaguar.

Júpiter + Jaguar is a synergy of ferocity, sensuality, and playfulness, a journey of freedom and expansion. According to EYAS Dance Project, the work aims to be “a powerful, pleasant, and epicurean experience, with a flowing dance, a virtuous body writing, full of color, incendiary and electrifying, full of nods to wild worlds, and irrigated with seduction.”

Without a doubt, Jupiter + Jaguar is a spectacular work, impeccable and fresh in its presentation.
