“Flamenco Black”: Live Music, Dance Concert
From the venue:
Performances November 11: 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
At Emory University Performing Arts Studio
A Través proudly presents “Flamenco Black” during the Atlanta Flamenco Festival. The concert features live flamenco music and singing, as well as choreography by international dancers Yinka Esi Graves, Antonio Arrebola, and Delilah Buitròn Arrebola.
“Flamenco Black” combines the art of flamenco, contemporary dance, and traditions of the African Diaspora. Dances reflect African influences on flamenco in the New World. This important and little-known aspect of flamenco demonstrates — on two sides of the Atlantic Ocean — ways in which communities are connected across geography and history. It is a surprising element of flamenco, an art form that for many is synonymous with Spanish culture and its Moorish and Romani influences.
This concert is funded in part by a grant from the Georgia Council for the Arts.
