In Carmen Torô, Torö, Torõ, the latest family show by José Montalvo, the choreographer invents a multifaceted, universal and joyous Carmen.


Montalvo’s Carmen plunges us into the kaleidoscope of aesthetics for which he is known. Hip Hop, flamenco, classical and Korean dance are joined in a whirlwind celebration of the art of blending different styles. The dancers crisscross and interweave their energies under a shared banner demanding the freedom to love. In Carmen Torô, Torö, Torõ, all of the characters, large and small, energetically defend a humanist vision of life. As Georges Bizet’s piece reaches a thundering climax, Carmen outshines them all, reminding us that in Montalvo’s work, woman is the future of man. The choreographer speaks to that human spark in all of us, and his Carmen is no exception, as she proclaims her lust for life and for dance.
