The Portuguese Vortice Dance Company will bring their Dracula show to Romania this September. The show, a reinterpretation of Dracula’s myth, will be on at the National Opera in Bucharest, on September 16, 19:00, during this year’s edition of George Enescu classical music festival.
Portugal’s Vortice Dance Company was created in 2001 by directors and choreographers Claudia Martins and Rafael Carrico. Over the years, Vortice Dance Company has become one of the most prestigious Portuguese dance companies, their work being recognized by the public and critics from several countries, such as Japan, France, Spain, Italy, Finland, Denmark and Brazil.
For the Dracula show, the two choreographers have used several sources of inspiration, from Bram Stoker’s horror novel with the same title, to legends and myths from different cultures. The show is a luxurious visual tale about submission and domination, featuring music by Philip Glass, Serghei Rachmaninoff and even Lou Reed.
