Flamenco dancer Isabel Bayon opens ‘Door’ to her soul
The voice of famed flamenco singer Terremoto pierces the darkness, telling a tale of lost love that comes to life in the movements of bewitching dancer Isabel Bayon.

The spotlight finds her center stage, striking a regal pose in a sexy, close-fitting black dress. As the show, “La Puerta Abierta” (“The Open Door”), proceeds, Bayon conveys feelings from lust to sorrow, slowly gathering force until she reaches a climax that brings the crowd to its feet.

Matthew Gilbert, of the Boston Globe, interviews Isabel Bayon:

Moving expression

Q. Do you think of yourself as an actress as much as a dancer?

Mujeres - Female dancers Isabel Bayón, Soledad Barrios featured in Flamenco festival
World Music's Flamenco Festival featured women dancers this year, with a single performance of Isabel Bayón's La puerta abierta ("The Open Door") and three shows by Soledad Barrio and Noche Flamenca at the Cutler Majestic. Bayón played an eternal feminine archetype, surrounding herself with proud, seductive gestures. Barrio was herself, dancing here and now for dear life.
