Con Nombre y Appelido

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Southside Theater (see times)
We celebrate our 47th Anniversary with the presentation of “Con Nombre y Apellido“, an exploration into the diverse national and cultural identities in both our city and the art of flamenco. Artistic Director Carola Zertuche will honor the famous families throughout flamenco history that have maintained a lineage and tradition for the art form – itself a mix of Spanish, Gypsy, Jewish, African, and Moorish influences. Using that tradition as a point of departure, Zertuche will reflect on the new crop of artists who are not of those families, nor of Spanish origin, yet have steeped themselves in that tradition and are pushing flamenco forward. Zertuche will integrate her Mexican roots with Spanish Gypsy, Asian and American artists who have earned renown in the art form – despite not having a “name.”

As dance critic Renee Renouf wrote of the Artistic Director after last year’s home season:
“One has to admire Zertuche for pushing the dance borders while remaining true to flamenco rhythms and style.
