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."

From the lands of the pharaohs to the Palace of Fine Arts, Anfoushi Egyptian Folkloric Dance Troupe makes their only Bay Area performance, as part of their first U.S. tour. Direct from Egypt, Anfoushi is recognized internationally, from the Middle East to Russia to Canada to eastern Europe and beyond, for distinct authenticity in presenting the rich musical and dance traditions of the Alexandria region. Steeped in both ancient and contemporary history, Egypt has a gracious legacy of cultural contributions for thousands of years. Anfoushi captures the essence of the Egyptian folkloric heritage in a full spectrum of dynamics in costumes, melodies and movements that captivate audiences with their sheer energy and exuberance. The concert is a journey into the delightful artistry of Alexandria and a closer glimpse at the folkloric tapestry of Egypt.
Sponsored by The Egyptian American Society, proceeds will help benefit the building of the first children’s cancer hospital in Cairo.
