Flamenco Intimo 2021
spanish legacies 2021-2022
Flamenco is a Spanish form of singing, dance, and music with roots in the diverse cultures that influenced Andalucía, the southernmost region of Spain. These influences include Gypsy, Moorish, Judaic, Afro-Iberian, Spanish Catholic, and New World cultures. The amalgam of the cultures from which flamenco came formed in the crucible of oppression under the Spanish Inquisition, and later their collective music evolved into the staged performing art of flamenco. Because flamenco evolved from the marginalized minorities of Andalucía it embraces the entire spectrum of human emotion. This deep emotional expression, coupled with the blend of seemingly disparate cultures, enables flamenco to resonate profoundly across cultural boundaries. Constantly shifting, flamenco continues to evolve through modern interpretations and international influences. It is an art of Spanish origin that exists in conversation with a global community.
Based in Phoenix, AZ, Julia Chacon Flamenco Theatre was founded in 2008 as Inspiración Flamenca. It is our mission to leverage the expressive power of flamenco to inspire connection and compassion, foster curiosity, and build community.
Julia Chacon’s Flamenco Theatre operates under the premise that the best flamenco comes from relationships built on trust, respect and confidence. This is because flamenco requires highly sensitive rhythmic and musical communication between artists on stage. To perform flamenco, one must constantly listen, be present, be flexible and have a humble willingness to grow, improve and evolve. This positive community depends on artists, students and audience members to create a positive circle where we are able to thrive.
