FLAMENCO VIVO AT BATTERY DANCE
In-Person & Livestreamed
A flourishing of cultures characterizes the grand finale of the Festival. Don’t miss your chance to see traditional Flamenco, a thrilling acrobatic solo, and a fusion of Mexican folklorico and contemporary ballet. A world premiere performed in Flexn, a street dance style from Brooklyn, an intimate male tango duet, a solo driven by the spirit of the drum, and a world premiere for Battery Dance by Ana Maria Lucaciu bring the Festival to a rousing finish.
FLAMENCO VIVO II Alegrías
Spanish for “joy,” Alegrías is a traditional flamenco palo (musical form) that originates from Cádiz, Spain. It has a 12 beat rhythmic cycle, playful mood, and often explores themes of the beach and ocean. This Alegrías is performed with flamenco complements including the bata de cola (long skirt train), mantón (flamenco shawl), abanico (fan), and castañuelas (castanets).
