Un Paseo Por Andalucía

A Spanish Souvenir

Flamenco is full of firepower. It starts with the name: Flamenco translates roughly to “having the quality of fire” in Spanish. Alice Blumenfeld’s performance of this age-old Spanish art form takes place at the Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE) on Aug. 31. Blumenfeld’s movements are masterful—you almost expect the floor beneath her to crack, expanding from her stomping feet as if from the epicenter of a tiny earthquake. She dares you to look at her feet in motion, the source of her power. The Outpost show is a homecoming for Blumenfeld, an Albuquerque native who just spent a year studying flamenco in Seville, Spain on a Fulbright grant. She’s also hosting flamenco lectures and workshops around town throughout August. For Blumenfeld’s Outpost performance, “Un Paseo por Andalucia (A Walk Through Andalucia),” she’s joined by world-renowned dancer Antonio Arrebola, singer Vicente Griego and guitarist Ricardo Anglada. It’s a tribute to the rich culture she’s immersed herself in this past year. Besides flamenco, Andalucia gave the world bullfighting and Pablo Picasso. Consider Blumenfeld’s hometown performance another gift from Andalucia, a unique souvenir brought to us with love. Much better than a t-shirt. Tickets are $20 and $15 for students. (Kristi D.

Flamenco dance and music direct from Seville, Spain.
