Victoria, renowned Spanish choreographer and former Artistic Director of Luna Negra Dance Theater Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s first work entering the Ailey repertory, features 10-12 dancers. Sansano's Victoria pairs the choreographer’s audacious, athletic movement style with the propulsive drive of "Rewriting Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony" by award-winning composer Michael Gordon to create a work that feels vital and thrillingly of-the-moment. To bring these visions to fruition, Sansano worked with scenic designer Luis Crespo, who he has collaborated with for over a decade, on a scenic element that imaginatively creates zones where conflict comes to life.
