Event

"Vengo"
Drawing on her everyday experiences for candid subject matter,

Rosario Toledo is an artist who regularly seeks out collaborators from art forms

beyond flamenco working frequently with musicians, actors, theater directors,

and dancers from other forms and traditions. Ms. Toledo's approach employs the

subversion of gender roles, composition of phrase work through theatrical drama

and improvisations, and humor as a versatile way to uncover inner dialogues.

She will present "Vengo" during the Festival, a 2012 piece she created to perform

in the streets in her hometown of Cádiz. "Vengo" begins with her taking the train

back home from Sevilla. On the "train" (represented by a few chairs in rows and

sound effects), she answers her "phone"her flamenco shoeexemplifying

her humor. Her work encompasses mime, as she exaggerates postures, pulls

faces, shimmies her shoulders and in perfect "compass" (rhythmic units), adds

contemporary dance vocabulary to her movements switching in and out of the

flamenco idiom.
