Siudy Garrido’s Intimate Flamenco Co-Presented with Jacob’s Pillow

Siudy Garrido’s Intimate Flamenco  Co-Presented with Jacob’s Pillow Hunter Center

Flamenco íntimo (“Intimate Flamenco”) is a suite created by Siudy Garrido, with original music by composer and award-winning Flamenco guitarist Jose Luis de la Paz. This work has had a life of its own since its premiere in 2016, and unapologetically continues to evolve. Just as an artist’s boundaries around intimacy grow and shape-shift, so does the artist’s expression. Flamenco íntimo boldly explores the range of colors, sensations, and emotions of Flamenco. The different styles of this art form are displayed with gusto, as yesterday, today, and tomorrow are woven together through movement that’s open and pure.

Garrido and some of her company’s foremost dancers perform while interspersed on the stage. They move to stirring musical solos that take the audience into the very core of each dancer’s unique expression offering a fresh perspective and exciting choreographic work to the ancient art form.

“As a choreographer, Garrido blends traditional aspects of flamenco — the rapid-fire footwork, the expressive curvature of the arms and extended fingers, with a sense of modern movement more akin to Martha Graham.” –San Francisco Voice
