Work Sample



Rock Flamenco is a collaborative project between Theatre Flamenco and rock musicians to create a world premiere performance for the Festival. Rock Flamenco is inspired by a time in 1970s following the death of Franco. La Movida Madrileña was ascendant in Spanish popular music, including various strands of progressive rock. Until then flamenco had remained separate from the rock music movement, but in the period following the death of the dictator and the relaxing of censorship laws a wave of cross-disciplinary experimentation took place. This initially outraged flamenco purists who saw it as the death knell of the form. But it turned out to be one of the great periods of innovation, transformation and renaissance as flamenco, popular culture and the people of Spain began to experience and experiment with democracy once again. Theatre Flamenco Artistic Director Carola Zertuche will adapt six compositions of flamenco rock to create a unique Flamenco Performance to pay homage to this pivotal point in Spain’s history.
