Description

Thundering footwork, chattering castanets, soaring vocals and blazing guitars, A’lante Flamenco takes hold of an audience and won’t let go! Directed by Olivia Chacon, the company’s seven dancers and four musicians fill the stage with energy, enthralling audiences of all ages and backgrounds, and presenting flamenco to Texas audiences in fresh and creative ways. Flamenco is a music and dance form hailing from southern Spain, with Roma (Gypsy), Middle Eastern, Jewish, and Latin American influences. A’lante Flamenco has been hailed by audiences and critics for their dynamic and contemporary approach to flamenco, uniting tradition and innovation. Available touring programs include theatrical productions (including Juana: First I Dream, inspired by poet Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz; The Red Shoes: A Flamenco Fairytale, based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale, and others) or a program appropriate for smaller venues, like Flamencura, which transports audiences into a traditional Spanish flamenco club. Programs can also be customized for specific events or audiences, including dance and music workshops, mini-performances, and lecture-demonstrations in Spanish or English, including discussions of history and cultural influences of flamenco.
