This performance in memory of the Czech dancer and choreographer Jiři Kylian begins with Morgen; (2022), a piece which signals the creative return of Nacho Duato to the CND (Spanish National Dance Company), after an absence of nearly 12 years as its director. With original music by Pedro Alcalde –and a recreation of Morgen! by Richard Strauss–, Morgen; is inspired by a Dorothy Parker poem which takes us through seven ways to commit suicide before, finally,  opting  for life. Sad Case (1998), by Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot for the Nederlands Dans Theater, is a continuous and tense pursuit, using satirical and classical moments, with surprising and earthly movements on Mexican mambo music. Based on the theory of the five phases of grief of the psychiatrist of the same name, Kübler-Ross (2014) is a duet conceived by South African Andrea Schermoly, for partners Maria Kochetkova and Joaquín de Luz. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance follow in an allegory about loss, constructed on the adagio of a violin concerto by Vivaldi. Also imbued by the chiaroscuro of Italian Baroque, this recognition concludes with a piece of the honouree: Bella figura (1995), “a journey in time, light and space, which explores the ambiguity of aesthetics, stage representations and dreams”.
