While traditional flamenco components ground "Pastora", the choreography is driven by "cante" and "palos" through a group of flamenco musicians who play at a table. "Pastora" provocatively questions flamenco's cultural conventions as Ms. Galván performs in a housewife's dress and apron, and later in a red and white ruffled gown that perpetuates female flamenco imagery. She evokes the bygone eras of the dance, and caricaturizes both male and female personas reminiscent of Sevilla villages from the past. In this piece choreographed by her brother Israel, she disobeys flamenco archetypes of female beauty, and of duende as mother and earth, by embracing ugliness, vulgarity and absurdity. Ms. Galván digs into the more physical and strenuous aspects of flamenco, vigorously stamping out the zapateado (foot percussion) and exaggerating female characterizations with irony and relish. While acclaimed as an extraordinary traditional dancer, she uses character work to bend the frame of dramatic narrative.

Sales online end at 3PM, but the box office opens an hour before the performance!
