Compañía Isaac Tovar
Sunday, December 13
Available for streaming through December 20th.
A living, evolving spectacle that aims to recover what is essential in flamenco, without embellishments: feeling.
Añejo is an open, living, evolving spectacle. Rather than to tell a particular story or script, it seeks to enjoy flamenco by referencing figures of its past, and presenting the essence of flamenco using the cante, the toque and the dance. It’s a work in which the audience must follow only its senses and feelings and enjoy every instant of what’s happening on stage. Representing Isaac Tovar’s first show as a solo artist, Añejo both demands and demonstrates all the knowledge and experience he has acquired along his trajectory as an artist.
Isaac Tovar is a former soloist of the Ballet Nacional de España, Compañía Andaluza de Danza, Compañía Antonio “El Pipa”, Compañía Aída Gómez, among many other premier national and international companies including Flamenco en route (Switzerland) and Flamenco Vivo (NYC).
Isaac performed as a semifinalist in the LIX Festival Internacional del Cante de las Minas. He is the recipient of the 1st prizes at the renowned Concurso Nacional de la Perla de Cádiz, the IV Concurso Internacional de Danza in Almería, and the XXVII Concurso Nacional de Ubrique, as well as the 2nd prize for Solo Choreography in the XXV Certamen de Coreografía de Danza Española y Flamenco in Madrid.
In 2018 Tovar debuted his first solo production “Añejo” at the Centro Cultural de la Villa in his hometown Seville. In 2019 his production “Generaciones” premiered at the prestigious Teatro Real in Madrid.
Throughout his career he has danced in important theaters around the world, including: Place des Arts in Montreal, Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid, Teatro de la Maestranza in Sevilla, Teatro Villamarta in Jerez, Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Palace of Music in Moscow, Chaillot Theatre in Paris, Sadler’s Wells of London, Bunkamura Theatre in Tokyo, International Theater in Taipei, Peking Opera House, and the Joyce Theater in New York City.
