The performance will be followed by a conversation with the choreographer hosted by Elisa Guzzo Vaccarino.


To love flamenco, to feel it, to vibrate to its compás is for the many. To understand it deeply, to truly know it is for the few. This is a world of oral, folk, street culture, immense, its impact strong and direct, but it takes a lifetime to fully appreciate its nuances, to respect it and perhaps even personalize it, crossing boundaries and styles, as Israel Galván does.
The genres and rhythms – the palos – in flamenco are almost infinite. Galván, who learned from his parents, knows how to play around with it, donning masculine as well as feminine gestures with a freedom and ease that are utterly contemporary, without ever disregarding the greatness of the tradition.
