Flamenco Fans take note: The Flamenco Festival will be spinning through New York City, turning the city “into a point of cultural encounter”, wrote Deflamenco.com:
This year, the program is doing a complete about-face in its concept, adapting its contents to a new kind of festival in which, above all, multiculturalism reigns with young up-to-date performers.
Compared to earlier editions, this one has a wide range of artistic visions. The program of the 11th edition is made up of a series of artists who share the common bond of Spanish culture, but who also have developed a divergent style and a different way of understanding flamenco, whether music or dance.
This year, 92nd Street Y will present two amazing programs in partnership with the Flamenco Festival.
Acclaimed flamenco dancer Leilah Broukhim will perform Dejando Huellas (Traces): A Sephardic Woman’s Ancestral Journey in Flamenco Dance on February 25. Created by Ms. Broukhim, this highly personal work is an intimate expression of Ms. Broukhim’s roots, her personal journey and the history of her people.
On March 5, Unterberg Poetry Center will present Words & Music: Federico Garcia Lorca, a poetry recital of Lorca along with the “Canciones Populares” interpreted by Gema Caballero.
Get a head start on the Flamenco Festival on January 14 with Flamenco Ole! – An Interdisciplinary Exploration in Dance, Music, Visual Art, Social Studies and Literacy.
