Overview

COMPAÑÍA EVA YERBABUENA
CARNE Y HUESO
MAR 9 & 10

“EVA YERBABUENA IS A VISIONARY, MAGISTERIAL DANCER, WHOSE EFFECTS GO FAR BEYOND TECHNIQUE”
THE GUARDIAN

Flamenco superstar Eva Yerbabuena presents Carne y Hueso (Flesh and Bone), a striking piece that serves as a prologue to the 20th anniversary of her company. Joined by five dancers and a cadre of musicians, Yerbabuena delivers an unforgettable tour de force performance as one of the most expressive figures dancing today. Her generous intimacy with the audience and technical dominance of the art form has widened the choreographic possibilities of flamenco.

BALLET FLAMENCO JESÚS CARMONA
ÍMPETUS
MAR 11

“THE FAST-SLICING PERCUSSIVENESS OF HIS FEET IS BRILLIANT”
THE NEW YORK TIMES

Jesús Carmona—a pioneer in flamenco’s evolution—is a former dancer with Ballet Nacional de España. The flawless footwork and ballet-infused moves that make him a dynamo of a dancer translate masterfully to the work he creates for his own company. For the festival, Ballet Flamenco Jesús Carmona performs its emotionally charged Ímpetus, an irresistible interpretation of famous scores from Spain’s most beloved composers.

On Friday, March 9, Carmona is joined by dancer/actor David Neumann and New York City Ballet principal dancer Joaquín de Luz for a Studio Event, Exploring Stillness, which shares the results of a five-day artistic exploration of stillness as a choreographic concept and expressive force in dance.

BALLET NACIONAL DE ESPAÑA
Antonio Najarro, Director
SUITE SEVILLA
MAR 2 – 4

“A PROUD, WILD, AND SUPREMELY VITAL EXPRESSION OF LIFE”
THE MIAMI HERALD

Ballet Nacional de España appears at City Center for the first time in nearly 20 years. The sheer size of the company and its hybrid form that draws from traditional flamenco and classical ballet make for a unique performance experience. Suite Sevilla, created by the company’s director, Antonio Najarro, infuses classic Spanish dance with bold trends in both music and choreography. Heightened by Rafael Riqueni’s score, the confluence of dancers and instruments evokes a primal longing for the traditions of Southern Spain.
