Event Details

At the crossroads of commerce, power, and civilizations, Cuba has repeatedly experienced points of inflexion in the arts. Some of the creative expressions that were present historically in the Caribbean island took on new meaning in the 19th century, when they pervaded circles of artists who were part of an emerging culture industry that would soon capture the world’s attention: the art of flamenco.

A new production by Berdolé highlights the cultural footprints of Cuba and other parts of Latin America, which shaped the flamenco aesthetic. A unique mixture of rhythm, music, and movement familiar to South America, Europe, and Africa, shaped the cantes de ida y vuelta, and was part of a continuum that gave rise to music on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. A cast of dancers and musicians performs the portion of the flamenco canon that developed after Atlantic crossings produced this new musical base in Andalusia.
