Mi Carmen Flamenca by ANTONIO ANDRADE FLAMENCO COMPANY
Fiery Andalusia. Men with raven hair and mesmerizing looks. Hot girls and women in colourful skirts with ruffles and lace. The clatter of castanets. A thrilling rhythm and omnipresent tension – a dance adaptation of the immortal story of Carmen. The first Czech guest appearance of the leading Spanish ensemble of dancers, singers and instrumentalists, founded in Seville and based in Malaga, the cradle of flamenco.
“Spain is a land of dance, music and mystery. The joyfulness contrasts sharply with the motionless expressions of the flamenco dancers, who express their grief through the temperament of their movements. The apparent contradiction of the two expressions creates an extraordinarily impressive picture. It represents life.”
Federico García Lorca
