DESCRIPTION:

“Fronteras “asks: What is stronger – what unites us or what separates us? Despite the barriers we encounter from the moment we enter this world, it is our natural drive to push beyond these obstacles and seek deeper relationships – and like life itself, flamenco does not understand nor accept such boundaries but supersedes them.

Honored by the King and Government of Spain with La Cruz de la Orden al Merito Civil for “all the years of passion, excellence and dedication to the flamenco art,” Carlota Santana is an internationally renowned flamenco and Spanish dance artist and educator. In 1983, she co-founded Flamenco Vivo with Roberto Lorca; following his death from AIDS in 1987, she was determined to continue their work. In the decades since, she has led Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana’s growth as one of this country’s most successful flamenco companies, with a mission to promote flamenco as a living art form and a vital part of Hispanic heritage.

Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of the nation’s most prominent flamenco and Spanish dance companies and is dedicated to honoring the traditions of flamenco while expanding the art form in new directions. Throughout its history, the company has employed emerging dance/music artists, and has premiered more than two dozen original works, offering commissions to outstanding US choreographers as well as renowned artists from Spain.
