Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana
Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, one of America’s leading flamenco companies, presents FRONTERAS, a new work choreographed by two of flamenco’s most exciting artists, José Maldonado and Karen Lugo, with an original score by Jose Luis de la Paz that will be performed live. Hailed by The New York Times as “an uncommonly deft balancing of the individual and the group in flamenco, and solid entertainment to boot.”
FRONTERAS (meaning “Borders” in Spanish) asks: What is stronger – what unites us or what separates us? Despite the barriers we encounter from the moment we enter this world, it is our natural drive to push beyond these obstacles and seek deeper relationships – and like life itself, flamenco does not understand nor accept such boundaries but supersedes them.
“[Carlota Santana] has accomplished something worth showing off: She has kept a flamenco company going in the United States for 40 years.”
