Noche Flamenca creates a diverse theatrical body of performance through song, music, and dance that expresses a rigorous, spell-binding aesthetic in the form of flamenco; one that exceeds the highest artistic expectations. The company strives to captivate its audiences through its live performances and to evoke in them the vivid and expansive sea of passion and emotion that is flamenco.
“Searching for Goya” is a preview performance, with live music, of 10-12 vignettes, integrating live performance, video projection, and possibly masks, created respectively by Martin Santangelo and Soledad Barrio, designer S. Benjamin Farrar, videographer Jesse Rodkin, artist/sculptor Mary Frank.
Noche Flamenca has been representing through flamenco the many ways in which the prolific Spanish artist responded to the turbulent social and political changes occurring in the world around him.
“The best part of Noche Flamenca’s flamenco musical Antigona—and it is full of astonishing parts—is the way that it tosses you between states of delight.” —Time Out New York
