Compañía Irene Rodríguez: Cuban-Flavored Flamenco
Focused on creating and exploring new avenues to evolve flamenco dance, dancer and choreographer Irene Rodríguez melds the fiery passion and exhilarating footwork of flamenco with a unique Afro-Cuban flair. She has earned high praise from The New York Times, who declared, "Ms. Rodríguez is an intense, exacting dancer; the word 'fiery,' so overused with respect to flamenco, actually suits her well." Compañía Irene Rodríguez's program in Washington DC, part of the at Kennedy Center's Artes de Cuba, showcases different dance styles ranging from genuine flamenco like Bulerías and Tanguillo de Cádiz, to Afro-Cuban dances like guaguancó, son, and rumba, to La Guajira and La Habanera. Among her many honors, Rodríguez has been awarded First Prize in the Ibero-American Choreography Competition "Alicia Alonso" in 2012, and an award from the Author's Foundation of the Spanish General Society of Authors and Editors.
