Flamenco Frequencies, by Fundación Conservatorio Casa Patas at Miami

November 8, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. on the Mid Stage at Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135), as part of our No Borders series, FUNDarte in association with Miami-Dade County Auditorium presents Flamenco Frequencies, by Fundación Conservatorio Casa Patas (Madrid, Spain), a vibrant and magical contemporary flamenco performance that will bring to the Miami stage the acclaimed choreographer and dancer Karen Lugo.

 

 

“We vibrate with everything that exists in this universe, can’t stop, we don’t want to stop. We seek to elevate our own vibration and that of everything that surround sus,” says Karen Lugo about Flamenco Frequencies, a performance work that mixes contemporary sensibilities with the cultural tradition of Casa Patas. Karen Lugo, award-winning artist among the most prestigious Spanish dance and national as well as international flamenco circles, will offer a brave and innovative repertoire that is certain to thrill both flamenco aficionados and those who are seeing this dance form for the first time. Karen Lugo is a choreographer and dancer from Mexico, and her heritage lends a particular strength to her art that will not go unnoticed by local audiences. As Javier Latoreer, winner of the National Dance Prize in 2011 (Spain), said of Karen Lugo: “She has all of the volcanic power of her native land, the necessary force to cross the planet in search of what she most desires. She’s Mexican and she’s the most ‘flamenca’ of any artist in the world.”

About Fundación Conservatorio Flamenco Casa Patas

Fundación Conservatorio Flamenco Casa Patas (Casa Patas Foundation) was born in the year 2000 with the goal of becoming a center in which all activities related to the study, research, and promotion of flamenco song, music and dance. In this sense, one of our primary objectives consisted in providing this art form designated as Intangible cultural heritage (Unesco 2010) by means of the production and presentation of performances, Master Classes and intercultural activities both in Spain and in other countries. The broad range of artists working in different styles that perform weekly on the stage at Casa Patas (where over three hundred different professionals perform yearly) places within the reach of the Foundation a wide gamut of work that the entity nurtures by organizing performances in theatres, festivals, and cultural centers around the world.
