Carmen, Carmen, Carmen: The show is a special production by Tablao Flamenco Cordobes which pays tribute to Carmen Amaya, one of the most important figures of flamenco dance. Carmen Amaya was born in the emigrant and gypsy neighbourhood Somorrostro in Barcelona, daughter of dancer ‘La Faraona’ and guitarist ‘El Chino’. Her style of dance was a metaphor for rebellion, behind it a unique, electrifying rhythm and ethic. She was even ahead of her time when it came to her wardrobe. The performance offers three versions of her diverse aesthetic profile featuring several prestigious young dancers. The show is divided in sections: ‘Lejanas Raíces’ (Deep Roots), ‘Carmen y su tiempo’ (Carmen and Her Time) and ‘Lazos flamencos de Andalucía’ (Flamenco connections in Andalusia).
