The event is free, however tickets are required. Tickets available February 1.
Journey through flamenco’s traditional song and dance forms with ABREPASO flamenco. Alice Blumenfeld and Marija Temo showcase the power of this Andalusian art form and its roots from across the globe, including from West Africa and Latin America, highlighting flamenco’s depth of expression and variety of interpretations. Blumenfeld is known for a unique and “fierce presence (her movements seem to arise from several feet beneath the ground)” (Thinking Dance) and her “sharp and exhilarating” energy onstage (Philadelphia Inquirer). Temo “one of the most powerful flamenco artists in North America” (El Latino and The Calgary Sun) continues “Challenging the rules of traditional flamenco…to break new ground in other ways” (Philadelphia Inquirer). “Her intelligence, natural intuitive ability combined with a passion and love of music places her among those exceptional interpreters of our time” (Soundboard Magazine).
Denison University’s Afrospice group will be opening for Blumenfeld and Temo.
Presented by the Department of Modern Languages with the support of the Department of Dance.
