Festival Flamenco Alburquerque: Compañía Olga Pericet, La Espina

8 pm

Festival Flamenco Alburquerque presents Compañía Olga Pericet in La Espina que Quiso Ser Flor o La Flor que Soñó la Bailaora. From award-winning dancer Olga Pericet, Espina encompasses a personal journey through dance that comes from memory, wounds, past kisses, and time, where the real and the oneiric melt in a single space-time: the interior. Espina’s language delves into the roots of the unknown; sows new things; creates a universe where feminine and masculine, humorous and dramatic fit in equal parts; and encounters human lights and shadows. A gallery of dramatic games where the woman always appears powerful, a miscellany of sculpted images, where space is traversed, between beauty and ugliness, joy and bitterness, seclusion and sensuality, youth and decrepitude, all framed in a future of rhythms that move in a palo flamenco and its opposite.

$40, $50, $70, $85

Produced by Tricklock Company, the Revolutions International Theatre Festival welcomes performance companies from all over the globe to perform and connect across cultures and communities. For the 19th annual festival, Tricklock and the NHCC present Where Did We Sit On The Bus?.

Where Did We Sit on the Bus? is an electric one-man show pulsing with Latin rhythms, rap, hip-hop, spoken word, and live looping. During a third grade lesson on the Civil Rights movement and Rosa Parks, a Latino boy raises his hand to ask, “Where did we sit on the bus?” and his teacher can’t answer the question. This thrilling autobiographical production examines what it means to be Latino through the eyes of a child, turned teenager, turned adult.

The NHCC’s annual celebration of Carnaval is a dazzling spectacle of vibrant dance, engaging music, and beautiful costumes, featuring the band PANdemonium and the Odara Dance Ensemble and showcasing the Carnaval celebrations of Cuba, Trinidad, Brazil and New Orleans.

Carnaval, the festive season occurring before Lent in many countries, including Latin American and Caribbean nations as well as parts of the United States, is one of the world’s most widespread celebrations and one of its biggest parties. Among the guidelines that the Performing Arts program has developed, refined, and utilized since 1999 to design its programming and curate its seasons is the provision of a variety of annual programming that is specific to seasons, holidays, and celebrations, as well as culture-specific. Carnaval was first celebrated at the NHCC in 2002, and has been part of the Center’s regular seasonal programming since 2006, with regular performances by presenting partners Frank Leto & PANdemonium and Pilar Leto & the Odara Dance Ensemble. This year’s Carnaval 2019 marks the 14th annual Carnaval Celebration at the NHCC’s Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts.
