José Maya, one of the most explosive dancers in Spain today, is a powerful figure in flamenco’s new generation. He has collaborated with many of the most well-known flamenco artists, including Farruquito, Estrella Morente, and Diego El Cigala, and opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé, and Björk. As a member of Grammy-winning guitarist Tomatito’s sextet, he captivated audiences at the New York Flamenco Festival in 2008. Maya now returns to New York with his own company in the NY premiere of “Red,” a fascinating program that explores Spanish Gypsy identity in the 21st century.
