Company Presentation

Artistic director of Compagnie Flak, founded in 1995, José Navas carries out his overall artistic approach in three distinct ways: he dances with intensity in solo shows charged with emotion, he constructs abstract and captivating group pieces, and he creates pieces of contemporary ballet with classicism and sensitivity. As a soloist, his performances reveal a richly sensitive maturity - a quality that has earned him invitations to dance on the most prestigious local and international stages. In 2013, surrounded by a hundred musicians from the Brussels Philharmonic, he performed his solo version of The Rite of Spring. Invited as choreographer in residence for Ballet BC, he contributed 3 pieces to that company’s repertoire, including an iconoclastic version of Giselle, and made a commission for the prestigious National Ballet of Canada. In 2015, he created Dénouement/Auflösung for Staatstheater Mainz in Germany. An Associate Dance Artist of the National Arts Centre, José Navas has presented his work in 30 countries in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
