Poised hands flying gracefully through the air, feet stomping with passion and a stage sprinkled with colorfully festive costumes. Produced by Instituto Andaluz del flamenco, Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía parades into D.C. to perform Metáfora
, a study in contrasts between the classical and folk elements of flamenco. These award-winning singers, musicians and dancers embody the overwhelming emotion and artistry of flamenco. Soloists include Pastora Galván, who exhibits a more sensual style with fluid rhythms than the usual stately posture of traditional flamenco, and Rocío Molina, one of today's most exciting flamenco stars. Under the direction of Ruben Olmo, Metáfora
is a dazzling kaleidoscope of castanets, fans, traditional flamenco bata de cola dresses, powerful footwork, demanding technique and jaw-dropping athleticism.
