Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana
For its anniversary season, Flamenco Vivo presents the premiere of a new work by flamenco legend Belén Maya. Mujeres Valientes explores the fundamental power and courage of two trailblazing women who challenged authorities and fought against ignorance, inequality, and injustice: 17th-century Mexican poet and philosopher Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and 19th-century activist and South American revolutionary Manuela Sáenz.
In the second half of the program, José Maldonado and Guadalupe Torres present new solos, giving audiences an opportunity to witness the kind of electrifying dancing that has won them prizes in Spain. The program features Flamenco Vivo’s international company of eight dancers and five musicians, with all works performed to live music.
