Flamenco Directo features a company of twenty eclectically trained dancers and musicians, each guided by the strong artistic direction of Carlos Rodriguez ? an unforgettable part of last year?s Four Elements Gala - and Ángel Rojas. Both men garner world-wide critical acclaim for their contributions to the art form.
Seamlessly weaving the traditional inspiration of flamenco with contemporary aspects, including jazz and modern dance, Nuevo Ballet Espa?ol expands the definition of flamenco while paying homage to its great heritage.
?Rojas excels with his footwork, from soft staccato shuffles to rapid gunfire volley ? Rodriguez has the edge on him, delivering a technically precise and physically intense performance, topped with natural showmanship.?
