Flamenco, an art form declared by the UNESCO in 2010 as an ¨Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, was born in the 18th century in Andalucia, southern Spain, as a form of expression reserved to celebrate the most intense moments in life.
AMFlamenco Company will present the Chicago premiere of their new work LA INSPIRACIÓN GITANA, which uses the passionate world of the gypsy dances to lead spectators in an experience and mixture of sensations, rhythms, and movements that define the art form. Moving through the different palos (rhythmic patterns: Fandangos, Siguiriyas, Soleá por Bulerías, Taranto…) audiences discover the intensity of the passion felt by the Gypsy people through time.
With the participation of the artists who form part of a new generation of Flamenco, from Spain and the United States, AMFlamenco literally “stamps” their mark on the national and international artistic panorama, a perfect union of heart and soul, music and dance in all its varied and fluctuating aspects.
Dance: Adriana Maresma Fois ¨La Nani¨ + José Moro
