Jardí Tancat – Catalan for "Closed Garden" – is based on Catalonian folk tales collected and sung by Maria del Mar Bonet. These folksongs tell the story of the people who work the land. They direct a supplication to God: Water, we have asked for water And You, Oh Lord, You gave us wind And You turn Your back on us As though You will not listen to us Choreographer Nacho Duato has portrayed this appeal in the powerful movements of three couples, who are busy plowing and planting the barren Catalonian land. They agonize about the lack of rain, but try to keep their spirits up in spite of this. Desperately but proudly they continue with their work, in this dynamic and expressive ballet.
