Flamenco dancers

Flamenco dancers feature emotion and athletic movement to tell their musical tale.

The Flamenco Foundation and Conservatory Casa Patas presents a performance of De Paso at Gesa Power House Theatre at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 16.

Inspired by the verses of the popular flamenco “cante” (song), De Paso (“Passing Through”) is a performance that is about the road that we take on our journey through the world; it is about the moments we encounter when different lives, temperaments, and feelings intersect. Blending theatrical effects, and traditional flamenco choreography.

De Paso is directed and choreographed by Sara Pérez, with musical direction by Jaime González. The production features flamenco dancers Sara Pérez and Rubén Puertas, flamenco singers Christina Soler and Ana Polanco, and flamenco guitarists Jaime González and Alejandro Moreno.

Casa Patas Flamenco Foundation and Conservatory came into being in the year 2000 with the objective of becoming a center that brings together the activities related to the study, teaching and promotion of Flamenco: cante (song), toque (the guitar and other instruments), and baile (dance). The Casa Patas Foundation and Conservatory organizes performances, master classes, and intercultural activities in Spain and abroad, and in 2010, the organization was hailed by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

De Paso is a live theatre event lasting approximately 75 minutes without intermission. Reserved seating tickets ($40) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the Gesa Power House Theatre box office at 509-529-6500.
