Imagine a body hovering between doubt and indecision, suspended between haste and knowing patience.  Imagine a non-conforming and brave being that faces its fears, succeeds and falters.  Seeking freedom within a dance that is full of subtleties, styles and shapes. An imaginary being celebrating life through dance. 

“A limitless, transparent and talented artist.”

Federico  García  Lorca used to say that in dramatic moments like these, you should lay down your lily branch and wade into the mire with the mud up to your waist to help those who are looking for lillies. This is what Daniel Doña  has done to help Cristian Martín make his first production. 

“I immersed myself in Cristian Martin’s imaginative world to help him transform his brilliance into a homage, a struggle, a celebration. I became fully absorbed by this BEING that is as transparent as he is limitless, talented as he is rigorous in his creative journey. My involvement in this project has been one of life’s greatest opportunities.”

Daniel Doña

 

“Cristian Martin deserves a special mention. His dancing is indubitably brilliant, with superior quality and flawless technical performance. Cristian’s dancing is poetic, intelligent and expansive, demonstrating his ability to command the stage. He has the gift of artistic sensitivity. His characteristic jump, use of breath and decision enable him to confidently communicate the emotional subtext and concept of the piece.”
