The lineup for Flamenco Festival Miami 2010 includes Gala Flamenca: “Todo Cambia” with Rocio Molina, Pastora Galvan, Belen Lopez and Manuel Linan on February 13th, 2010. Compania Rocio Molina in “Oro Viejo” on February 17th, 2010. Compania Maria Pages in ” Flamenco Republic” on February 18th and 19th, 2010.
“Now entering its third consecutive year, Flamenco Festival Miami has become one of the most highly anticipated performing arts events of the season, repeatedly achieving sellout status,” said M. John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. “We invite the South Florida community once again to witness one of Spain’s most revered art forms performed by world-renowned artists right on our stage.”
Introducing Flamenco’s most important and daring young stars: the sensuous Pastora Galván, equally breathtaking in classic and modern flamenco; Manuel Liñán, a master of dazzling technique and dramatic choreography; the passionate Belén López, a sensationally beautiful and riveting performer and Rocío Molina, the fiery dancer who has “become one of the finest soloists in the world today (New York Times).”
Pastora Galván’s lively spirit and irrepressible energy drives her to continuously immerse herself in new projects and artistic adventures. “At once florid and generously full-bodied, her performance style takes possession of the stage.” (The Daily Star)
“Manuel Liñán gives flamenco a shake-down in terms of both style and content. He can be contemporary or traditional, but first and foremost he keeps it simple, shunning all that is the superfluous.” (Flamenco-world.com) Liñán is a maestro of flamenco expression, with an artistic style that is both creative and non-conformist.
A child prodigy who has emerged as a mature flamenco dancer, Belén López is sure to win the audience’s adoration. Flamenco-world.com raves “López is a performer with experience, charisma, slyness and boundless virtuosity.”
Rocío Molina has become a major star in the flamenco world at the age of 25. A revelation in flamenco dance, Molina is described as “a fiery, tightly wound whirlwind, exploding in amazingly precise and rapid footwork.” (The Miami Herald)
