Flamenco Puro

November 23, 2016

March last year at a fiesta, Festa de San Xosé, in Santigo de Compostela I saw incredible flamenco.

Flamenco Puro at Teatro Timanfaya en Puerto de la Cruz had a very hard act to follow.

Flamenco Puro succeeded.  They were not better, they were different.

Well done Monica, theatre director, for once again putting on an excellent show.

Contrary to the name, this was not pure flamenco, more a musical performance. But then maybe flamenca is more than dance.

Started with a lone guitarist, followed by a singer, followed by another singer. They then provided the backing for the dancers who came on next.

Thrilling dancing, including stunning solo performances.

Dance went beyond classical flamenco. Was this modern flamenco?

Tonight was an extra performance.  Thursday night will be last night.

Near to Christmas there will be special performance.  Maybe February next year, a new season.
