"The anguish of the earth absolves our eyes
Till beauty shines in all that we can see.
War is our scourge; yet war has made us wise
And, fighting for our freedom, we are free..."
Music by Hans Zimmer & Klimek(J).

- It is a lush choreography for 12 dancers, full of beautiful movement phrases, interesting use of space and effective rhythmic patterns -.

- Very nice was the choreography of Altea Nuñez 'Absolutio' . It's a nice challenge to work with these young dancers. She lets you look at motion with a lot of nuances, movement that involves strength and tension. The soundscape of sound artist Hans Zimmer creeps under the skin and sometimes creates an intriguing atmosphere. Altea Nuñez has studied the music composition thoroughly. The dancers move in group as one body in an impressive sonorous environment. A choreography with ‘pure blood’ danced as driving force -.

When I was asked to create new work for the Royal Ballet School of Antwerpen , the idea rose to show a little glimpse of that work in progress on their 65th anniversary Gala Performance few months sooner.
Principal dancer Alain Honorez dances a solo that is not directly taken out of that ballet, but rather one that emerged out of its choreographic material and soul.
What better inspiration to create new work that the incredible sensibility, grace and beauty of Alain’s dancing and interpretation.
“In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.
It will be a permanent Self, rooted in awareness and creativity. Once you have captured this, you have captured the world”.
This solo has been dance by former principal dancer with Ballet Flanders, Alain Honorez and first soloist dancer with Compania Nacional de Danza Spain, Yanier Gomez N.
