After watching the premier of Kimica

So, Kimica is a new co-production of Compas Company and Adrian Santana. The full crew of the company were dancing. Accept Mijal Natan - the main dancer and manger of this company were Ayelet Shachar, Moran Ron, Vlada Vest, Hadas Nestel, Lia Sheinfeld and Guerau Cabrera. It's a show that based a bit on a preview show of Compas Company and Adrian Santana, but includes many new parts that didn't got in then and at least one new dance that the company has finished working recently. Later on I will tell how do I know this dance after all and how new it is. This time the musicians were again Yehiel Hason on the guitar and Shuky Shveiky was sinning. Another new part - Miriam Levy joined them as a singer and Itamar Shapira joined as a guitar player. 

I came early. For a start I went to the box office. Well, got two things at a time. Ilan was the only one before me at the line. I could "attack" him and giving him the birthday gift I brought him. I wasn't sure if I will see him on his birthday or closer than that evening to his birthday. By the way - Keren gave both of us our tickets. He didn't come alone, so after he opened the gift and thanked me - he offered me to come and say hello to someone that he was with. Not good idea... She doesn't like me much, if she even remembers me. Ilan said that she really isn't an easy person, but he must go back. I was looking for some other people that I know. Few from the studio. Someone that I knew that suppose to come and outside the studio of Mijal - I saw only after I got to my place at the hall. 

The show itself starts like the other time Compas Company and Adrian Santana made it together. Mijal and Adrian made short solos under spotlights. It went on for a short duet. After that Adrian went out of stage. All lights on stage worked for the solea por buleria of Mijal. She stayed a bit for the next dance. The next one made by all Compas Company. All were wearing pants, including the girls. All for the farruca. I was amazed. Recently I learned that certain farruca at the studio of Mijal. We finished it not long ago. They made few little changes for making it more fit for stage. I mean - a little bit of "role play" - a bit of few dancers who respond to others. And two-three hands' movements that weren't on classes. And the biggest surprise for me: the group as it used to be so far wasn't alone. A new dancer on stage that no one said that she will dance with them. She never was on the company, but comes for many classes (including the farruca) and dance like a professional. Her name is Ivelisse Gonzalez Martinez. Her first time on stage with this company and the only time that she was on stage in this show - accept the bow down. I know why did Guerau moved to Israel from Spain, but I/ have no idea why does Ivelisse rather be here......

The next part was the taranto of Mijal. Few little changes as well, but the idea stayed. Few moves has been taken out and others has been replaced it. One big difference than the times that she dances it was the fact that most of time Shuky was standing next to her and sang to her. She responded him a lot. At the end - Miriam took the place of Shuky and Mijal was responding to her. 

Next part was a marinete. Under a spotlight Guerau was dancing a duet with Ayelet while the music was palmas. Another spotlight has replaced the first one. Guerau moved to it and danced a duet with Vlada. Third spotlight replaced the second spotlight. Guerau danced another duet, this time with Moran. All with plamas. The other girls has joined the stage. Lights all over the stage. Music has started. They all danced a liviana. After few moments I got it - when the music has started it became one of the first dances that I learned at the studio of Mijal! I was amazed from two reasons: some of the moves were faster than I remembered. The other reason that it was the second danced that I learned and I see on stage at the same evening. I knew both are really pretty, but does it mean that I am that good as well?

Next part was a duet of Mijal and Adrian. A siguiryia with castanets that both of them played on. Mijal also was wearing a bata dress. I remember that dance since the other time they performed together. It looked good enough that I won't mind to see it again. 

After that the company made a dance of romera y mirabra. A new dance to my eyes. And new dresses. My opinion about the dresses has been confused me a bit, but the dance itself was fun for watching. 

Last dance was a caña that Adrian was dancing with a manton, also at the other show they made together. The other time I was too busy being amazed of it, now I could get into details. Recently I started to learn at Mijal studio a solea with manton. Solea and caña are very close to each other but not the same. Few things that Adrian made reminded me this time few things I learned recently to do with the manton. Other things still amazed me and I was wondering if I will ever be able to do the same things. 

Bow down.

Now I must get into the backstage. Without saying hello to the fellows and ask for a photo - I don't attend to go back home. I was one of the first people backstage. Few of the musicians remembered me better than I thought. I could talk also a bit with Miriam who I wasn't sure if she remembers that she saw me before. All company as well. Idit was there and got in. From some reason she looked a bit shocked to see me there. I wonder why. I told her that I learned two of the dances that were on stage. She said that it's good for me. I was talking with all company, but Adrian still didn't come out. I wanted to talk with him as well and ask for a photo with him and Mijal, although I didn't know if he remembers me. Well, when he came out - Idit was catching him for a talk. I asked Mijal if it will be fine with her if I will have a photo with both of them. It was fine with her, but it took a little time till Idit let him talk with others. When Idit let go - I found out that Adrian remembers me. First thing was kissing at the Spanish way. A moment after - Idit took couple of photos of three of us. I received an agreement of Mijal and Adrian to publish the photos, so...

Ilan also came to backstage, but went away before the photos. He went because of the people he came with
