Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company will present their new Fall season, Yjastros By Design on Friday, November 12 at 8pm and Saturday, November 13 at 2pm and 8pm in the Journal Theatre at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

This season’s performances show the company’s resurgence from a challenging period that has deepened the members’ resolve to continue honing their flamenco expression in new ways. Yjastros By Design features intricate re-imaginings of choreographic masterpieces set on Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company by Artistic Director Joaquín Encinias, guest artist Lidón Patiño, and other choreographers. This season highlights tradition and innovation in the world of flamenco and features choreographies created by artists at the global forefront of the art form.

In 1999, Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company set forth on an artistic journey that would become America’s most distinctive flamenco project. This revolutionary performance entity combined the mosaic quality of the American repertory company with the authentic idiom of flamenco, creating a living archive of choreographic masterworks. Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company is the dance company in residence at the University of New Mexico. Learn more: https://www.nifnm.org/the-company
