dance: Noche Flamenca

“[T]he emotional quality of flamenco cannot be choreographed; it’s an intangible consequence of the dancers’ and musicians’ intense identification with their art in the moment of performance. And with the exception of the company’s star, Soledad Barrio, the dancers (Alejandro Granados, Alfonso Losa, Vanesa Coloma and Elena Martin) on Thursday night too often substituted an intensity of facial expression or gesture for the elusive real thing.”
