The Bronx Museum of the Arts’ Community Advisory Council invites you to celebrate the holidays at the Museum.
Move over Drosselmeyer—make room for Tío Augustín! Step aside toy soldiers—the bullfighters have arrived! Away sugar plum fairies…give them flamenco dancers! The story may seem familiar, but the cast of characters is refreshingly new. A large family gathers to eat and drink, to dance and sing, to celebrate Christmas—dancers sing and singers dance, recalling the folkloric fiesta of Flamenco, rarely seen today by theater audiences.
Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana II presents Navidad Flamenca in collaboration with The Bronx Museum of the Arts as part of the 6th annual Flamenco in the Boros Tour. This series of free community performances thrills audiences with the rich holiday customs of the Spanish-speaking world from Argentina, and Mexico, to Colombia, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Through music, carols, and dance, Navidad Flamenca highlights these traditions all united by a single language and reflects the influences of the Spanish culture throughout the Americas.
"An exuberant exhibition of storytelling through flashy footwork, splashy guitar and melodramatic song…It was breathtaking."
