Thursday, March 26
María Pagés returns with a new work rooted in her desire to talk about women -- a different story about what real women feel and live. The performance’ description says this isn’t the story of Carmen many may know, adding that “Yo, Carmen” is about the emergence of the feminine voice.
Friday, March 27
Manuel Liñán returns with an all-male dance company in a new show exploring gender identity through characterizations inspired by the flamenco woman. “¡VIVA!” is a song to the freedom of movement in which the feminine is embraced from the masculine body as its own and gender roles are broken with joy and enjoyment, according to the performance description.
Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29
“Stars of Flamenco” will bring together flamenco dancers and singers demonstrating the diversity and vibrancy of flamenco. This year’s project will join together dancers Mercedes Ruíz, María Moreno and Eduardo Guerrero, with Manuel Liñan reappearing as the artistic director.
