Elevator Project 2024
Flamenco Fever’s insightful Fusion Series will present Tres Artes: Pintura, Poesia y Pasion. As part of the 2024 season of Elevator Project at the AT&T Performing Arts Center, local students, international musicians and dancers will take the stage at Strauss Square to tell the tragic love story of Salvador Dalí and martyred Spanish poet, playwright and flamenco aficionado, Federico Garcia Lorca. Join us for an evening of passion and excitement as we delve deeply into the provocative history of Spain and the rise of Surrealism, the LGBTQ community and the Fascist Franconian Regime in the early 20th century.
Pintura, Poesia y Pasion combines four dynamic art forms – live music, dance, the visual art of Rolando Diaz, and the recitation of Garcia Lorca’s poetry – into an unforgettable performance. In this sophisticated evening, Diaz will visually capture the vibrant essence of the flamenco arts on canvas by utilizing a lyrical and whimsical play of line and color, while exploring and capturing the parallels of political and social oppression throughout history.
Flamenco Fever produces over 70 performances annually, each accompanied by requisite live music. They landed Dallas on the world map last summer when they presented Memorias Flamencas in Spain, starring Jorge Pardo, the internationally acclaimed father of flamenco jazz, after debuting in Dallas at the Majestic Theatre. This was the first American company in Spanish history to be invited to perform. Hundreds of flamenco aficionados, and Spain's top artists, enthusiastically received the show.
