High drama, faster footwork
“Exceptional. A completely convincing display of first-rate dance and sheer star power” – The Times
With hot-blooded passion, high drama, and unparalleled musicality, Sara Baras’s Shadows is a feast for the eyes and ears. After more than a decade, the flamenco superstar returns to the Festival, reinvigorating her trademark style, la farruca—a dance of rapid-fire footwork traditionally performed by men—and making it completely her own. Baras’s “dancing boils from within” (The Washington Post), and together with her company, one of Spain’s most adored, creates a dazzling display of poetry in motion.
