Modern Flamenco at Instituto Cervantes

This coming Monday, February 12, see our resident flamencologist K. Meira Goldberg perform at Instituto Cervantes NY with José Moreno. Goldberg will be performing her original program Raíz, which she recently debuted at La Nacional.

About Raíz:

Inspired by the work of great Spanish artists such as García Lorca or Camarón and by cultural traditions such as cante jondo, African rhythms and Jewish rituals, R A Í Z seeks to create a ceremony of immersion in the rites of flamenco. The performance emerges from the poetic and transgressive realism of arte povera: a return to simple objects and messages, a stage where traces of nature and the industrial come alive. The Crone embodies the strength of instability. She enacts rejection and rebellion, memory and faith, feasting and solitude. Her pilgrimage maps a homeland containing many forces in tension. This contemporary quejío, opens spaces and sensations where wings may find ground and roots take flight.
