What is the Soul of Flamenco? It is not the performers themselves, but what they carry inside - 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.
In celebration of its 30th Anniversary, Flamenco Vivo looks forward, and back, to its origins. The company 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.
