An Homage to Love and Dance in Madrid, On Madrid Day

Madrid has been hit terribly by the Covid-19 crisis. In a special effort to honor the city on Madrid Day, The Dance Enthusiast is happy to  present the online premiere of Momentos Madrileños (Moments from Madrid), a short dance film by  contributor to The Dance Enthusiast and  filmmaker, Stacey Menchel Kussell.

Tune in to The Dance Enthusiast on Saturday May 2nd at 1PM EST for the online premiere of Momentos Madrileños.


The film profiles Marcat dance, founded by choreographer Mario Bermudez Gil – an alumnus of the Batsheva Dance Company – and his partner Catherine Coury.

A native of Andalusia, Gil began his choreographic career in Israel, but for the last three years has been creating dance in his native Spain fusing the Israeli Gaga style with folkloric Spanish influences.

The footage showcases the company in the dance studio during a residency at Centro Danza Canal, and in site-specific choreography in the city’s iconic locales including Plaza Mayor, La Latina, and Casa de Velázquez.


The score is a pan-Mediterranean mix of classical Spanish music from Francisco Tárrega and Manuel de Falla combined with guitar selections from Israeli musician David Broza.
