Flamenco: Finding Voice Through Fusion

Thursday, October 6, 2016

With roots that derive from Arabic to African, Indian, and Spanish influences, flamenco dance and its unique interplay of music, dance, and song have captivated audiences across continents for generations. This second installment of Ballet Hispánico’s Diálogos series unpacked the cross-cultural influences that have established flamenco as a form, while exploring how its folkloric roots have been recast in contemporary ways. Belgo-Colombian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa—who has set two flamenco-inspired works on the Ballet Hispánico Company—joined acclaimed flamenco masters Liliana Morales and Nelida Tirado to discuss the impact of this magnetic dance form on their identities. The panel event included an exclusive sneak preview of Lopez Ochoa’s new work for Ballet Hispánico, Línea Recta.
