The Bay Area Flamenco Partnership presents The San Francisco International Flamenco Festival 2005 with ?Vanguardia Jonda?, the most recent production by dancer/choreographer, Andrés Marin. In this exclusive US engagement, Marín and his company pay tribute to key figures of Flamenco history, creating a dynamic interplay between tradition and the avant garde. Marín?s unique perspective is inspired by a deep understanding of Flamenco song and fueled by a fearless impulse to stretch the boundaries of Flamenco dance. Critically acclaimed for his performances at the Bienal del Arte Flamenco de Sevilla in both 2002 and 2004, Andrés Marín is considered a major force for the future of Flamenco dance. His innovations on traditional structures, rhythms and upper-body style, coupled with his strength, intensity and passion have distinguished him as one of the most important Flamenco performers on the international scene today.
