Rothko Chapel

Creation by Marcos Morau

Watch the trailer for Rothko Chapel

Besides running his own company La Veronal in Spain, Marcos Morau works internationally as a choreographer. His skills as a photographer mean that Morau relates to his subject visually, so his creations sometimes resemble the aesthetic of opera. 

In winter 2016, Marcos Morau’s duet Zelenstova was a part of the dance program Northern (de)Lights 2016.
