FLA-CO-MEN

Celebrated Spanish flamenco dancer Israel Galván performs in FLA-CO-MEN, as a preview of the upcoming fifth edition of ¡Flamenco!, a festival dedicated to the Spanish dance at the Auditorium from 10-13 October. Galván performs in and choreographs this production which reflects the influence of his mentor, the late experimental flamenco artist Enrique Morente who maintained that in flamenco is it necessary to "translate" the "tradition" but be aware of the "betrayal" involved in the act. The event at the Auditorium is followed the next day with a performance by Rocío Márquez and Rosa Torres Pardo at the Accademia Reale di Spagna, in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes di Roma.
