The concert features cutting edge choreography in flamenco and contemporary dance from international guest artists and UNM’s distinguished resident faculty.
Fandango is an original work choreographed by Valeriano Paños set to a late eighteenth century composition. Omega by Javier Latorre is part of a three-section work in homage to Enrique Morente, one of the most influential singers in the development of “cante flamenco”. Talegoneando is choreographed by Carmen “La Talegona” who is known for her emotional and cutting interpretation of flamenco. Described as a “sensational and physical blast of pure dancing.” If I Could Only Reach you is a contemporary work by guest choreographer Tomaž Simatovićset to "Breakthru" by Queen. The concert’s artistic director, Vladimir Conde Reche, choreographs Search for the Silver Lining, with physicality that abstractly portrays the struggle to search for the silver lining in all scenarios. Donna Jewell’s new work Superior Temporal is a duet, which investigates how humans interfere with each other in ways that are both enhancing and destructive. This electrifying concert of new works that highlight the extraordinary students in the UNM Department of Theatre and Dance runs February 26 through March 6 in Rodey Theatre.
