The power and beauty of traditional flamenco!
Inspired by the powerful and sonorous voice of guest flamenco singer Vicente Griego, director/dancer Deborah Elias explores the intrinsic relationship between time-honored flamenco song and the embodiment of its palpable emotion through the dancer.
Featuring raw, soul-baring solos, lustrous and spirited company dances, and driving guitar rhythms, Flamenco, Pure & Strong connects us to each other and to a more elemental sense of life in the midst of our modern world. With guitarists Ben Abrahamson and Trevor May, and dancers Catherine Higgins-Whiteside, Laura Horn, and Andrea Plevan. Presented at Intermedia Arts, Minneapolis, 2011 and on tour.
