Tour 2023: Fronteras

The Straz Center: Ferguson Hall  |  Tampa, FL

Friday March 31 @ 8:00 PM

Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, one of America’s leading flamenco companies, presents FRONTERAS, a new work choreographed by two of flamenco’s most exciting artists: José Maldonado and Karen Lugo – with an original score by Jose Luis de la Paz that will be performed live. Hailed by The New York Times as “an uncommonly deft balancing of the individual and the group in flamenco, and solid entertainment to boot,” FRONTERAS asks: “What is stronger – what unites us or what separates us?” Despite the barriers we encounter from the moment we enter this world; it is our natural drive to push beyond these obstacles and seek deeper relationships – and like life itself, flamenco does not understand nor accept such boundaries but supersedes them.

Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana showcases the pride and power of flamenco in Tablao Flamenco, featuring an international cast of dancers and musicians. Named after the wooden floor used by a bailaor/a (dancer), tablaos are intimate venues that harness the highly improvisational and virtuosic nature of flamenco. Originally known as cafés cantantes (which became popular during the mid-nineteenth century in Spain), tablaos are still among the most popular places to see flamenco today. Tablao performances offer audiences a rare opportunity to feel the artists’ emotions up close and experience the dynamic interplay between the dancers, guitarist and singer come alive. The energy is explosive as artists are inspired by one another and the freedom to take risks and embrace spontaneity.
