“Contemporary ballet” in Spain: an heirless Ullate

Is there such a thing as “contemporary new ballet”, i.e. a classically-based
choreographic creation? If there is, Spain could well be a lucky country.
However, the route opened up by Víctor Ullate, teacher extraordinaire, company
director and choreographer, has been seldom trodden, with preferential attention
given to Nacho Duato and other imitators of Kylián. Roger Salas describes the
ups and downs of “new” Spanish ballet and spotlights its new authors, active at
home or abroad
