Festival will showcase nuevo flamenco
An idiom beset with controversy


By AARON COHEN
Special to The Chicago Tribune
January 11, 2004

When Spanish guitarist Gerardo Nunez describes the heart of flamenco, his words cut with the same precision as his solos. After discussing the music's history, he slices through not only its popular image, but also an ongoing controversy over authenticity.

"Flamenco is a form of living, a form of expression," Nunez says. "It is a culture of living in the moment."

DANCE

By WILMA SALISBURY
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
January 25, 2004

Flamenco is hot - not only in Spain, where the fiery Gypsy songs, music and dance have sizzled for centuries. Not only in New York City, where annual flamenco festivals draw huge crowds, nor in Southern California, where innovative forms of flamenco nuevo are warmly welcomed.

Surprisingly, flamenco is also flourishing right here in Northeast Ohio. Tickets to flamenco concerts at the Cleveland Museum of Art are gobbled up as quickly as tasty tapas at a cocktail party.

Flamenco Like Something Out of Kafka

By VALERIE GLADSTONE
The New York Times
January 25, 2004

SEVILLE, Spain
Israel Galván fancies himself a flamenco rebel. To demonstrate his point recently, he performed a section of his "Metamorphoses," which was inspired by the Kafka story and originally presented at Seville's Bienal de Flamenco in 2000. Lying down on the floor of the studio in his house here, he placed his feet on the wall and squirmed like a trapped bug. Slowly he writhed into a standing position and bent his right leg and extended it in front of him. He finished the sequence by spinning across the room in a series of slow pirouettes. Little of what he did seemed even remotely like flamenco.

"People call my movements new and grotesque," Mr. Galván said, "but I copy many of them from photographs of great flamenco dancers from 50 years ago. I just use them differently. I strip the dance to essentials.

A female dancer in touch with her masculine side
Two troupes honor a flamboyant, gender-bending flamenco icon


SEVILLE, Spain - Flamenco artists cherish their history. When the CompaÄnia Andaluza de Danza and Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras perform at Emerson College this week in Flamenco Festival USA, they will honor the flamboyant Gypsy dancer Carmen Amaya on the 40th anniversary of her death. An international cultural icon in the '40s and '50s, Amaya crossed the traditional boundaries of flamenco, combining the elegance and grace of the female style with the fierce, high-impact bravado of the male style, going so far as to perform male dances dressed as a man.

Article from The FT to tie in with the New York Flamenco festival.

Quote:
Flamenco in the modern world: could this be a contradiction in terms? On one hand, there are the dark sounds of cante jondo, "deep song", created by marginalised gypsies in rural Andalusia two or more centuries ago, and still sung in southern Spain by old-timers.


It can sound less exotic than weirdly lugubrious - reflecting strains of the Judeo-Muslim culture of medieval Spain from which flamenco springs.

The excitement continues this weekend when World Music brings two of Spain’s most prominent flamenco ensembles to the Cutler Majestic Theatre: Compania Andaluza de Danza tomorrow and Friday, and Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras on Saturday and Sunday.

Februray 2, 2004

"Esencias," the Flamenco Festival concert performed by Compania Manuela Carrasco Friday night at the Cleveland Museum of Art, evoked the atmosphere of a family reunion in a Spanish village.

Flamenco Festival USA Promises a Warm and Spicy February
By Valerie Gladstone
Special to The Washington Post
Tuesday, February 3, 2004; Page C05

GRANADA, Spain
Quote:
Flamenco fans generally fall into two categories. One glorifies tradition while the other welcomes change. They often heatedly argue about whether the art should be brought up to date. But they usually agree on flamenco's icons: the dancers Carmen Amaya and Antonio Gades, the guitarists Sabicas and Carlos Montoya, and Federico Garcia Lorca, the poet and dramatist who wrote lyrics for flamenco songs and the flamenco-infused play "Blood Wedding" -- even if they overlook how controversial they were in their time.

The sounds of flamenco cast a spell in Cleveland

Mount the barricades. The flamenco revolution is on.

I moved to Cleveland eight years ago, after having lived in Spain for six years, working as a journalist, studying Spanish guitar and hanging out in the smoky flamenco tablaos (clubs) of Madrid where the art form is thriving.

You might have seen María Pagés as the flamenco dancer in Riverdance, but she's much better in her own show. The opening scene of El Perro Andaluz (The Andalucian Dog) shows her strengths...
