The U.S premiere of Voces, Suite Flamenca, a new work from flamenco superstar Sara Baras, will run for four performance at New York City Center, March 4 - 7, 2015.
Capturing the emotion, drama and passion of traditional flamenco with a vibrant contemporary edge, Sara Baras is joined on stage by her company of ten dancers, including guest artist José Serrano and eight renowned flamenco musicians.
Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, Sara Baras has become internationally famous in a career that has spanned more than 20 years and earned her dozens of prestigious dance awards, including Spain’s highest dance honor (National Dance Award), Flamenco Dancer of the Year (Flamenco Hoy), Best Female Performer of Dance by the Association of Flamenco Critics, the National
Dance Gold Medal of Andalucía and France’s Medaille de Vermeil de la Villa.
Described by The Guardian (London) as a “woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane,” Baras has created and choreographed 11 original evening works and delivered more than 2,500 acclaimed performances with her company all over the world.
Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras is the final presentation of City Center’s A Bailar: Dance at the Center, a three- week Latin dance festival, running February 18 – March 7. The Festival opens with the U.S. debut of Havana Rakatan, a celebration of Cuban dance and music (February 18– 22), and continues with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s m¡longa, which captures the sultry world of Buenos Aires tango (February 26 – March 1). The Festival’s many free pre-show events include dance lessons and discussion panels that will explore Latin culture through a variety of lenses.
Voces, Suite Flamenca is presented by New York City Center and Flamenco Festival.
