Enjoy the charismatic and compelling performance of flamenco dancer Jesus Carmona at Dubai Opera on 19th September where beautiful balletic compassion meets valiant and commanding flamenco footwork.
What makes a flamenco star? A driving sense of rhythm. A visceral, almost carnal connection with the musicians onstage. (Flamenco is primarily a musical form, as the pros love to remind us.) And, of course, impressive technique: crisp, blindingly fast footwork, deep backbends, sculptural arms, fluid hands. Jesus Carmona has all these things.
Known for his incredible footwork and his ballet-infused style, Carmona is considered a pioneer in the dance genre’s evolution. He will be performing 'Impetus' (Bursting with Energy) live at Dubai Opera this September alongside his company of 11 dancers, musicians, and vocalists, in a show featuring scores by great Spanish composers Albeniz, Riqueni, and Escudero.
It’s not a traditional flamenco evening; in its purest form, flamenco is improvised. “Ímpetus” is structured like a thoughtful traversal through various dance styles. In Mr. Carmona’s words, “It’s not exactly ballet, and it’s not exactly escuela bolera, and it’s not flamenco. It’s a hybrid.”
Don’t miss the ‘Impetus', a spirited and enthusiastic work which exudes energy and showcases the highest level of improvised flamenco performance.
