Nacho Duato

Spanish modern ballet dancer and choreographer

It’s good for me to keep more in touch with the dancers, and not forget how difficult dance is, how vulnerable the dancer can be. . . . When I make choreography I cannot do it from a chair, I must be moving with them. So I make little appearances, like Hitchcock, here and there.
