Passport to Dance: A Palo Seco

Sara Cano (Madrid)
Sara Cano

Blending flamenco tradition, Spanish folklore, Japanese butoh, Israeli folk dance rikudim, and contemporary impulses, Sara Cano is shaping and advancing the future of the flamenco dance form.

With her commanding stage presence, brilliant technique and atypical approach to tradition, Cano mesmerizes audiences with dances that go beyond convention and into the transformational.

Set to a penetrating soundscape by Spanish composer Héctor González, A Palo Seco, charts Cano’s personal evolution toward the future without losing the grasp of tradition.

Runtime: 60 minutes (no intermission)
