A tale of love and passion told with the fervent art of flamenco dancing, Lluvia (Spanish for "Rain"), is the latest show from Eva Yerbabuena. Highly respected throughout the international dance scene, Yerbabuena has been honored with a number of prestigious awards, including the Premio Nacional de Danze (Spain's National Dance Award), and hailed as "a visionary, magisterial dancer whose effects go far beyond technique," by The Guardian. In Lluvia she will be joined by four other talented dancers and an ensemble of musicians, as she continues to expand the tradition of flamenco dancing with her world-class footwork that The Independent describes as "the kind of artistry that appears once in a generation."
