Created in 2008, Miniatures retraces some of the highlights of choreographer José Navas’ life, through a series of seven solos, set to some very moving music. One of the most romantic works in Compagnie Flak’s repertoire.

After receiving enthusiastic acclaim in Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and Germany, Anatomies continues to tour, making its next stops at La Rotonde in Québec City and at the Modern Dance Festival (MODAFE) in Seoul, Korea.

Presented over twenty times since its creation in Montreal in 2006, this piece for five dancers is reinvented by a completely new cast. This time, José Navas is surrounded by the talented dancers Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Lindsey Parker, Eldon Pulak and Lauren Semeschuk.

Between these two Anatomies tours, José Navas will fly solo for the Dublin Dance Festival where he will present Miniatures; an auto portrait in seven solos created in 2008 after seven years consecrated to the creation of group pieces.

After seven years of creation devoted to group pieces, José Navas returns to solo work with a renewed passion and reveals himself with all the nuances and subtleties of a mature dancer. Exposing the fragility of a soloist who bares his soul, he invites the public to an intimate encounter with the artist and man, in an unveiling of his personal history in seven short solos to music chosen by the artist. One of the most romantic shows in Compagnie Flak’s repertoire. Touching and exhilarating.
