An Evening to remember. A rare treat for the people of Hong Kong! Joaquin CortÃ©s presented us with an extraordinary and unique talent as a dancer, music which contained a combination of Spanish, Gipsy and modern elements, outstanding choreography and last but by no means least an accompanying orchestra in which each musician and singer showed individual brilliance.
The performance of the flamenco , perfectly executed, touched the spectator with its celebration and interpretation of life. While Joaquin CortÃ©sâ upper body remained perfectly still, his legs and feet were a flurry of vibration which the eye at times failed to catch . He emphasised his virtuosity with simple, but dramatic slow gestures of his head, hands and arms.
No-one who saw him could fail to be moved by the intensity and sincerity of his performance â and by his genuine pleasure to be dancing.
