Experience flamenco’s intensity, strength, and expressiveness with Abrepaso’s newest production, En Camino! The work features new choreography by Artistic Director Alice Blumenfeld (Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award recipient FY20) and new music by guitarist and singer Marija Temo (most recently seen on Telemundo’s La Voz). They are joined by versatile percussionist and composer Liam Smith, along with Abrepaso’s apprentices, who showcase the diversity of Cleveland, each expressing their unique selves and stories through this Spanish dance form.

The performance features two new traditional flamenco pieces, a garrotín, traditionally performed with a Cordobés hat and an alegrías, a joyful dance from the beach town of Cádiz. Two new pieces are built around the idea of folds and folding, what it means to fold in on ourselves or unfold and be vulnerable to life around us. Blumenfeld will dance two exciting and impactful solos, one her own choreography and one choreographed by Adela Campallo.
