Ballet Flamenco La Rosa (BFLR), an international flamenco dance company, based in Miami and made up of international dancers and musicians, presents the World Premiere of Verano y Humo, an original Flamenco Ballet that blends the traditional art form of flamenco with a classic American play. Created and choreographed by Artistic Director of Ballet Flamenco La Rosa, Ilisa Rosal, the piece was inspired by Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke. The performances will take place on Saturday, June 9, 2018 and Sunday, June 10, 2018 at the historic Colony Theatre on Miami Beach.
This work, made up of dancers and musicians from the U.S., Spain and Latin America, is composed of 14 dancers paired with live music, as the drama molds itself to the art form of flamenco. Using flamenco as a language to interpret Tennessee Williams’ spiritual/physical romance, the themes provide ample opportunity to explore common elements of Spanish, American and English cultures. The piece will show the universality of this art form making for a spellbinding and dynamic interpretation of this great play, and a once in a lifetime theater experience.
