an exquisite show presented by flamenco dance company "Aire" (St Petersburg, Russia) as part of FLAMENCO FIRE - new section in the 6th edition of Timisoara International Dance Festival
Aire Flamenco Theatre - was created by choreographer Ekaterina Tsvetkova in 2003.
The "Crescendo" performance they prepared for us this year is the result of a 5 years cooperation with Javier Latorre - one of the greatest flamenco choreographers of our time. During his career maestro Latorre has created lots of choreographic masterpieces and has received numerous awards, including “Premio Nacional de Danza” - the highest dancing award in Spain.
The art of flamenco in its purest form is a trinity of music, singing and dance. However, as Javier himself says: “Flamenco is my essence, which remains unchanged, no matter what music or dance vocabulary I use”. And, indeed, whether he’s using the music of Vivaldi or Piazzolla for his staging - flamenco’s rhythmical structure and spirit are invariably represented there.
“Crescendo” is a sophisticated fusion of music from different eras and styles and flamenco dance.
This is the music itself, which is dancing: dancing so powerfully and passionately that it touches the bottom of your heart. Unique choreography and live music will involve you into the world of love, beauty and pure art.
