Created, choreographed, and performed by Belén Maya
The performance scheduled for Friday, February 15th has been canceled due to weather conditions. We are looking into possibly rescheduling the performance. More information will be posted once it is available.
A solo show, this experimental contemporary dance theatre work incorporates text, movement, percussive footwork, circus feats, street busking and more to a score of music by Roma women. Belen Maya, an innovator and critically acclaimed performing artist, became instantly recognized around the world in Carlos Saura's 1995 film Flamenco. In Romnia ("women" in Romani language), Maya performs "many women at the same time...whose laughter and mourning have become movement and beauty." (Joaquin Lopez Bustamante). Her work at KU is made possible by the Janet Hamburg Guest Artist Fund.
