Emilio Ochando y Compañía
Friday, December 11
Available for streaming through December 18th.
An autobiographical journey bringing together tradition and the vanguard through dance and music.
In this work, Ochando creates a unique environment with sound, creative staging, lighting, and (of course) stunning artistry. Shawl, bells, spoons, and castanets combine with strong musical composition involving Spanish guitar, the cello, piano, and the live voice. A beautiful blend between tradition and the contemporary.
