Wearing a mask while inside the Theater is optional.
Flamenco y Exilio is a night of Flamenco music and poetry at The Paramount Theater in which internationally acclaimed Latin Grammy Award nominees, flamenco singer-songwriter Juan Pinilla, and master guitarist David Caro, along with the UVA Spanish Theater Group, will present a work that combines flamenco «cante» (song) and «toque» (music) with poetry, all using Antonio Machado’s biography as a narrative thread.
FLAMENCO, a genuine Spanish art form, was born as a popular expression of those who have no voice. The music will be presented together with a POETIC RECITAL of works of a group of poets who were also left without a voice because they were forced into EXILE following the Spanish Civil War.
The Virginia Spanish Theater Group, together with the invited flamenco artists, will offer an artistic evening in which expressions of the experience of Exile– the atemporal and universal displacement resulting from conflict–will be recreated in a choral form. We are proud to present to you our event titled: FLAMENCO Y EXILIO.
The entire event will be bilingual, in Spanish and English. A full program will be available with the performance.
