Flamenco Vivo/Carlota Santana Soul of Flamenco
Saturday, November 16, 2013
“This was a show of graceful, sensuous dance, expressing a host of raw human emotions-evocative of loneliness, pride, passion and joy”~The Philadelphia Inquirer
“[They] brought down the house.” ~The New York Times
What is the Soul of Flamenco? It’s the impassioned investment of each dancer, singer, and musician. Flamenco is an expression of feeling, a community built on emotions. Happiness, sadness, joy, sorrow are translated through this eloquent art form, expressing the vital essence that lives within each of us. These universal emotions are shared across time and physical boundaries, and are the foundation of Flamenco.
The company returns to the South Milwaukee PAC after their sold-out performance during the 2011-2012 season. In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, Flamenco Vivo looks forward, and back, to its origins. Soul of Flamenco will feature an all-star cast of Spanish dancers and musicians in newly created pieces and reconstruct an early work by Roberto Lorca (company co-founder), Luz y Sombra, which revels in the light, joy, and shadows of life. Don’t miss this impassioned performance!
