José Navas

By Megan Andrews, Valerie Simmons

Born in Venezuela in 1965, José Navas has been based in Québec since 1991.

Meditative Abstraction 

By Jill Goldberg "Anatomies" José Navas, Compagnie Flak

Dancers in nothing but boy-shorts, minimalist lighting, an empty stage. Much has been made of José Navas’ transition from a choreographer who crafts dance with a theatrical aesthetic to a more mature artist whose work is subtle, even ascetic.  

 

Expressive Geometry  

By Philip Szporer Adela, Mi Amor José Navas, Compagnie FLAK

Inspired by the writing of Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca, and in particular his most political dramatic work “La casa de Bernarda Alba”, José Navas finds common ground with the playwright in that he wanted to respond to what he calls the “non-dance” that he sees produced in the Québec milieu.
