Bending the Walls

Fernando Hernando Magadan | Nederlands Dans Theater, Korzo producties

An ode to the imagination

The Dutch dance organizations Korzo and Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) join forces to support up-and-coming choreographers, and offer them a suitable platform to create a new performance and bring it on tour. In 2018 the choice fell on choreographer and dancer Fernando Hernando Magadan, a mature talent of which you absolutely want to see more.

Spanish choreographer Fernando Hernando Magadan has already made several pieces inside and outside the Netherlands, but it was the DansClick-tour of 2015 which introduced him to a wider audience as a choreographer. In the tragicomic duet (d)elusive minds he convincingly and with a sharp virtuosity brought together dance, text, scenography and music in a multilayered narrative. His new performance Bending the Walls is about the human desire for happiness. A longing  that is rooted deep in our dreams and desires, and which can be a necessity; a strategy to protect yourself, to survive even. Fernando is inspired by the incredible courage and resilience that people show under extreme pressure, which enables them to transcend the reality and escape into a world of imagination. In Bending in the Walls dance becomes a metaphor for the psychological, physical and emotional forces that we can address to withstand the pressures of life and continue our incessant quest for happiness.

concept, choreography Fernando Hernando Magadan

Bending the Walls is produced by Korzo producties and Nederlands Dans Theater and made with the support of the Municipality of The Hague.

from the press

...sharp and virtuoso…’ (de Volkskrant on (d)elusive minds)

Magadan’s movement vocabulary never fails to excite, deriving from his own physicality: frenetic and quirky, at times cramped and staccato, at others fluid and expansive, but always inventive and musical.’ (Dance Europe)
