Flamenco Journey is a showcase of Flamenco history articulated in the current “Farruca” flamenco form. The audience is transported by way of cinematographic flashback to 17th century Andalusia. Flamenco was born then and there from a hodgepodge of Moorish, Christian and Gypsy cultures and traditions.
The show weaves through the centuries, stopping to dance the 18th century fandango, to witness the use of the first “batas de colas” in the 19th century“cafés cantantes”, and to relive the momentous flamenco opera period of the 40s.
We go on to pay tribute to the most influential artists from the 50s until today: Antonio Ruíz Soler “el Bailarín”, Antonio Gades, Cristina Hoyos o Camarón y Paco de Lucía. The trip concludes with pieces by Enrique Morente, Estrella Morente, Niña Pastori, Miguel Poveda and David Palomar.
