CUATRO: A Flamenco Performance
September 18 @ 7:30 pm - September 22 @ 6:00 pm$13 – $26
Audiences are invited to witness a unique improvisational experience featuring locally and internationally recognized Flamenco dancers and musicians: dancer Illeana Gomez (Texas and Madrid, Spain), dancer Sachiko “La Chayí” (Osaka, Japan and Minneapolis), singer José Cortés Fernández (Marseille, France and Los Angeles), and guitarist Alejandro Pais Iriart (Buenos Aires, Argentina and Madrid, Spain).
CUATRO will take place from September 18-22, 2019, at the Phoenix Theater in Minneapolis.
Flamenco, in its distinctly Southern Spanish tablao-style, offers a twist of spontaneity and skilled improvisation to traditional dance and music, which comes to life through the high-spirited collaboration between the dancer, singer, and guitarist performing together on stage.
Co-presented by Sachiko “La Chayí,” 2017 McKnight Dancer Fellow, and Minneapolis-based Arts Nest, CUATRO invites these artists to perform together for the first time in a series of six live performances. True to the roots of flamenco, the artists will perform a unique set for each show.
