*pre-show 47th Home Season Gala Celebration
In its 47th home season, Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco will present Con Nombre y Apellido, an exploration of the diverse national and cultural identities in the art of flamenco. Artistic Director Carola Zertuche will honor the famous families throughout flamenco history that have maintained a lineage and tradition for the art form itself a mix of Spanish, Gypsy, Jewish, African, and Moorish influences. Using that tradition as a point of departure, Zertuche will reflect on the new crop of artists who are not of those families, nor of Spanish origin, yet have steeped themselves in that tradition and are pushing flamenco forward. Zertuche will integrate her Mexican roots with Spanish Gypsy and North American artists who have earned renown in the art form despite not having a "name."
The oldest flamenco dance company in the nation, Theatre Flamenco proudly presents world class and internationally recognized flamenco artists. Featuring guitarist Jose Luis Rodriguez, singer José Cortés, bassist Sascha Jacobsen, electroacoustic musician Fermín Martínez, flamenco dancers Carola Zertuche, Cristina Hall, Marién Luévano, and guest co-director Ricardo Rubio - be prepared for an unforgettable experience of flamenco.
This long history and presence of Theatre Flamenco is an integral section in the fabric of the cultural arts community and offers an inspiring experience of flamenco for its audiences.
"One has to admire Zertuche for pushing the dance borders while remaining true to flamenco rhythms and style."
