Theatre Flamenco, the dynamic, award-winning dance company and nominee for the Isadora Duncan Dance Awards 2008-09 for Outstanding Achievement in Ensemble Performance premieres SER Y ESTAR, an evening length work by Carola Zertuche, Artistic Director of Theatre Flamenco.

The title, SER Y ESTAR, refers to two Spanish words that both translate to the English phrase “to be.” However, ser and estar possess very distinct meanings. The word ser refers to an essential characteristic, while estar refers to a condition.

Moving along the peripheral borders and barriers of gender, culture, nationality, and identity, Zertuche’s evocative choreography, dynamic footwork and vivid stage presentations will explore the metaphorical conditions and the essential characteristics of being. What does it mean to be?

Zertuche and Theatre Flamenco company members will explore these ideas through movement and song. The company will be joined onstage by renowned guest artists from Spain - Jose Valle Fajardo "Chuscales", Juan Siddi, Francisco Javier Orozco “El Yiyi”, Vicente Griego, Francisco Borrego and Cristina Hall.
