“Echoes of Spain” to be performed in Ostrander Auditorium.
Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre and Dance News Release, 10-10-2014
Mankato, Minn -- Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre will present a performance of “Echos of Spain,” a concert full of vibrant traditional flamenco dance, guitar and singing, and featuring an ensemble of critically, masterful performers, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, in the Ostrander Auditorium of the Centennial Student Union. Zorongo is hosted by the Department of Theatre & Dance. The concert is free.
Inspired by the “Avante Garde” revolution in Paris in the early 1900s, in which the glamour and fire of Spanish dance ignited the art scene, this performance will present songs, music and dances that echo the past while bringing forth contemporary spirit and virtuosity. Artistic Director Susana di Palma directs master gypsy guitarist Chuscales, powerful flamenco singer Vicente Griego and dancers Jesus Munoz, Deborah Elias and Colette Illarde in an evening concert that you will not forget.
This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008.
