Flamenco dancer & Choreographer Mina Fajardo and legendary flamenco Guitarist Chuscales are coming back to Teatro Paraguas this Spring 2017!!!!!
Teatro Paraguas presents three days of flamenco dance and music in our Flamenco Fiesta 2017 entitled “Hito-Fude & Sumi-e: Calligraphy and Choreography - Illusions in Arts” by Compañia Mina Fajardo & Chuscales on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, March 31, April 1 & 2, 2017.
In Japanese, Hito-Fude describes a single brush stroke, and Sumi-e is the fully realized black ink painting built from those single strokes. Still, there is more. Sumi-e is the act of writing a painting, of painting a poem. This inspired performance combines the fluidity these visual acts with the elegance of flamenco dance and music. While these two traditional art forms are very different, the blend to show that all arts, passions, and spirits are a connecting path through the world.
Guest artists including flamenco guitarist Joaquin Gallegos, flamenco dancer Domino Martinez and Monze Diaz.
