ABOUT THE SHOW
Patricia Guerrero embodies the changing face of flamenco, which UNESCO has declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, and is spearheading a new generation of younger flamenco artists redefining this traditional music and dance art form for the twenty-first century. Patricia Guerrero’s work combines modern and traditional elements of flamenco into a choreographic stream of consciousness that is both playful and contentious, performative and private. Her dancing has been called “fast, exciting, and full of invention” by Dance Europe magazine. Guerrero will be joined by flamenco guitarist Guillermo Guillén and cantaor Ismael Fernández.
ARTIST THE ARTISTS: PATRICIA GUERRERO
Born in Granada in 1990, Patricia Guerrero has deep flamenco roots, yet has pioneered exploration into other styles of music and dance, while remaining rooted in the flamenco language. With a strong commitment to the flamenco tradition, she has nonetheless adapted the style to her own vision, and evolved a contemporary flamenco dexterity.
