Festival Flamenco Performance: Impetu's by Jesús Carmona

Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque presents Compañía Jesús Carmona in Impetu's, an evening of extraordinary contemporary flamenco along with classic Spanish dance.

From his beginnings as a dancer in other companies through the founding and maturation of his own company, Jesús Carmona has always aspired to have his creations serve as a showcase for Spanish culture. In Impetu's, he draws upon the great musical compositions that have contributed to his artistic growth and built his life and character, both professionally and personally. New versions of these works allow for innovation, while preserving the legacy of fine music that gives the show its emotional impact.

Impetu's features renowned musicians Daniel Jurado, Óscar Lago, Thomas Potirón, Luqui Losada, and Juan José Amador, with lighting by David Pérez. The talents of these artists, together with the strength and energy of Carmona's choreography and staging and the masterworks of great Spanish composers, combine in a show that will keep the audience enthralled from the very first chord, and that can be summed up in the single word Impetu's.
