A: COVID-19 has had an enormous impact in the arts community specifically in live performance. Flamenco, like many arts, thrive on the living, breathing, proximal audience. Although many, including myself, have quickly adapted to performing live without an audience, it’s just not the same. In fact, it’s awkward and strange. This summer I performed at my alma mater, Iona College, for the camera, not a live audience. After each number we’re accustomed to applause. For the first time, after I did a strong final pose, there was nothing. No clapping. Jaleos. Shouting. Nothing. And while this is our “new normal” I do hope we will return to the stage and our audiences very soon. We need them as much as they need us. This time has forced artists to innovate in their expressivity via video art. Artists can now perform, create, direct, and express without the live audience and without the ephemeral experience. Now the art can live on forever.
