Flamenco Dance Comes to Curitiba
The famous Spanish dancer, Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya, internationally known as Farruquito, arrives in Curitiba next week fresh from his European tour. He performed last weekend at Sadler’s Wells theater in London, participating in the Flamenco Festival of London.
Farruquito is debuting his newest show, Abolengo in Curitiba on the 10th of April at Teatro Guaíra. Honoring the roots of flamenco, Farruquito’s new show draws its inspiration from the traditional origins of the world famous dance genre.
Farruquito is the grandson of Farruco, a legendary Spanish dancer who introduced his son to flamenco culture. Sharing the stage with Farruquito is the dancer Karime Amaya, the grandniece of Carmen Amaya, the most famous phenomenon in flamenco dance of the 20th century. Abolengo, which translates as “lineage” honors these two great families of Spanish dance.
Farruquito, who started his career at five years old, is also known by the title “Grand Del Flamenco”, as one of the greatest representatives of this dance today. He has performed in many countries such as Japan, Israel, and Holland to share his dance spectacle, which unites traditional and modern flamenco.Abolengo by Farruquito Benedict Auditorium Munhoz da Rocha Netto – Guairão April 10 at 9 pm Tickets: R$240 (orchestra); R$200 (1st balcony) and R$140 (2nd balcony) [Source: Diplomacia e Turismo]
