De Carmen (Ballant a la sorra)
In order to commemorate the greatness of Carmen Amaya, one of the finest ever flamenco dancers, celebrated choreographer Maria Rovira has created a show dedicated to her life and work.
Entitled De Carmen (Ballant a la sorra), the show makes use of the medium of dance and music to re-enact certain aspects of the life of the gypsy-born flamenco icon. This is no simple biopic though; Rovira has intentionally blurred the distinctions between beginning, middle and end in order to create a more visceral and sensory experience.
De Carmen is showing at 9.30pm Tuesday to Saturday and at 6.30pm every Sunday. Prices range from €22.50-€25.50.
