Rafaela Carrasco, from Seville, is a breathtaking dancer and one of the most important flamenco choreographers of today’s generation. Keeping one foot in the old world as she dances toward the new, she is an elegant, refined and gutsy dancer whose innovative choreography expresses what flamenco means in the 21st century.
Her company of dancers and musicians will perform the DC premiere of Una Mirada del Flamenco (A Look at Flamenco), which displays Carrasco’s rare ability to explore new concepts while maintaining the essence and integrity of flamenco.
“Carrasco is that elite, instinctive dancer whose entire body ‘plays’ like a musical instrument.” – OC Register
