The fiery excitement of flamenco dance is brought to Wyoming Seminary's Kirby Center on Valentine's Day 2017! Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of the nation's premier flamenco and Spanish dance companies. Come to this performance and see for yourself how the universal spirit of flamenco, a multicultural art form, has the power to build bridges between cultures and inspire audiences from diverse backgrounds.
Poema de Andalucía is a journey through the cultural richness and traditions of the Andalusian provinces that form the “cradle of flamenco.” Despite their proximity, many stylistic differences exist between the regions of southern Spain. The varied traditions, festivals, and rituals of daily life reflect the special character of its people and have made the Andalusian region a wellspring of cultural heritage, not just for dance and song but for poetry, art, and literature. Through the language of flamenco, this special ‘Poem’ pays tribute to the unique land and people of Andalucía.
“This was a show of graceful, sensuous dance, expressing a host of raw human emotions-evocative of loneliness, pride, passion and joy” ~The Philadelphia Inquirer
