Fri, Apr 7 - Sun, Apr 9
Promenade Hall: $14 - $29
Guest Artists: Acclaimed Flamenco Artist from San Fransisco, Danica Sena; her musicians, and Madison’s own Flamenco Artist Tania Tandias.
Spain is not just the country of tourist postcards: Bullfights. Conquistadors and explorers of centuries past. Siestas. Spires of ancient churches. Sun soaked afternoons. It is the poetry of Lorca and Machado, the stunning paintings of Goya, Dali, and Picasso, the driving rhythms and flourishes of Flamenco, and the complex melodies Spanish music.
Celebrate Spain’s legacy of language, music, culture, history and art through elegant, contemporary and experimental dance. Enjoy new works and collaborations presented and performed by Guest Artists, Kanopy Artistic Directors, and Kanopy Company dancers. The evening will feature guest artists Danica Sena —an internationally-acclaimed master flamenco and Spanish dance teacher, choreographer, and performer—and Tania Tandias, a teacher and performer who studied flamenco, Spanish classical, and escuela bolera with the top flamenco dancers in the United States today.
