Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco, one of the Bay Area’s oldest and most prolific dance companies will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Friday, November 4 , 2016 with special performances El Latir del Tiempo/The Beat of Time.
Featuring the traditional color, passion and character that distinguish the art of flamenco, Theatre Flamenco presents some of the world’s most renowned artists from Spain! Artists include: dancer Pastora Galvan, an international star of flamenco, who made her professional debut with Theatre Flamenco at the age of 15; and flamenco singer Juana la del Pipa, who hails from a dynasty of artists from the flamenco cradle of Jerez de la Frontera in Southern Spain.
“El Latir del Tiempo/The Beat of Time will be performed in celebration of Theatre Flamenco’s glorious past and in eager anticipation of our vibrant future,” said Zertuche. As part of the 50th anniversary, Zertuche has opened a new flamenco center in the Mission District called Carola Zertuche Centro de Arte Flamenco/Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco. Opening in September, the center will be devoted to the art, study and performance of all aspects of flamenco music and dance. “Along with growing national and international recognition, Theatre Flamenco has a new space in San Francisco’s Mission District. After our 50th anniversary season, we plan to begin using this space to expand our teaching to include children’s flamenco classes. The ‘beat of time’ will continue, as the powerful and expressive legacy of flamenco is passed on to future generations.”
