Los Angeles' Herencia Flamenca has earned a reputation as one of the West Coast's leading flamenco ensembles, blending a respect for the roots of flamenco with innovative style. The company puts on a show with performers representing flamenco traditions from across Spain, including two very talented and very different dancers originally from Barcelona: company co-founder Yolanda Arroyo and veteran performer Dolores Gimenez, making her U.S. debut after decades of success as a dancer and choreographer in Spain. The company's other co-founder, guitarist Paco Arroyo, hails from Cordoba, while guitarist Vicente Gelo comes from Seville, and singer Sonia Berbel and guitarist Fernando Mejias were both born in Madrid. All these and more will unite for a show that embodies the soul of flamenco, both elegant and explosive. Learn More

Subject matter seemed difficult to convey in a convincing, non-melodramatic way. It was also overtly moralizing which did not appeal to me. The dance sequences were enjoyable. The production moved along at a decent pace. I did enjoy the venue.
Frost and Fire, a new multimedia music theater production presented by Theatre Bethune, combines a variety of actors, dancers, and digital artists in a performance adaptation of novelist Ray Bradbury’s appropriately titled short story. The futuristic tale takes place in the year 5002 on a foreign planet where a sub-culture of humans rise to existence and are condemned to a life cycle of eight days. Main characters Sim and Lyte put their short existence in danger as they search for the secret to the society’s escape from their inevitable fate.
Their story is told through the words of Mr. Bradbury and the beautifully staged and choreographed sequences of director/choreographer Zina Bethune. Accompanied by the original score of composer Zeljko Marasovich, with the graphics and video artistry of Michael Masucci, and special video guest artists Michael York and Lee Meriwether, the production is an entryway to the “sublime” (LA Weekly).
