ABOUT THE PIECES:
Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía, is recognized as the most important representative of flamenco art in Spain. The company returns under the direction of the multi-award-winning Rafaela Carrasco. Awarded with “Giraldillo” for the best show in the 2014 Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, Images: 20 Years celebrates the 20th anniversary of the company, and revisits five of the most celebrated choreographies of its repertoire. Not only a tribute to the former directors who inspired Rafaela during her career, the show is also an interpretation of the rich history of the company. The show, awarded with the Giraldillo Prize of the 18th Flamenco Bienal of Seville for Best Show, is a creation of current choreographer, Rafaela Carrasco. Rafaela has been involved since the beginning of the company as as student, répétitrice, soloist dancer and now, since 2013, as Artistic Director and choreographer. Rafaela is inspired by these five selected moments in order to pay a tribute to the former directors of the Ballet. The show is not only a review of the different stages of the company, but a personal interpretation of these moments, drawn with the experience obtained during these 20 years.
