NOTE: Due to travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jorge Pardo will not be performing. The show will still feature his music.
“Memorias Flamencas” comes to us as part of Ida y Vuelta’s Flamenco Fusion Series. Since 2016 Julia Alcantara has been co-producing with various companies in an effort to expand and educate the flamenco fan base in DFW. Each concert was an enlightening and entertaining experience for the cast and audience alike. Now she is pleased to introduce the father of Flamenco Jazz, Jorge Pardo to Dallas, courtesy of the “Elevator Project”, who is assisting in its production.
A long time fan of Flute/Sax player/composer Jorge Pardo. Julia had the chance to meet him while on tour with Paco de Lucia and they quickly became friends. His amazing blend of Jazz and Flamenco tests the boundaries of both forms yet retains the true essence of each genre. The passionate blend is engaging and intense, utilizing all the breaks and calls necessary for authentic flamenco. Yet, no one has ever done an entire dance concert to his music. Julia Alcantara wanted to make this a reality, as an homage to the genius whose compositions, no matter how innovative, never lost respect for the dance. Now, in Dallas,TX this will happen for the first time, with an allstar cast of dancers from around the country teaming up to create distinctive choreography to match the uniqueness of his music.
