The audience itself is drawn into a maelstrom ofemotions: a hot mixture of flamenco and bolero, with subliminal dancescenes and sensual choreography. Using these elements in CarmenFlamenco, Aguilar has created a timeless piece of dance drama that setshim apart from other Spanish choreographers of classical, pureflamenco. This flamenco- extravaganza is both a benchmark of Spanishdance theatre and one of the most sensual and erotic choreographies ofall times!
