Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana

Dazzling Spanish music and dance

The nation’s most prominent flamenco and Spanish dance company!

DE LA FRONTERA (formerly known as Latido)
De la Frontera is a new evening-length work choreographed by José Maldonado and Karen Lugo, with an original score by Jose Luis de la Paz. De la Frontera is an investigation of life and connectedness. It asks: "What is stronger - what unites us or what separates us?" Despite the barriers we inevitably encounter from the moment we enter this world; we are driven to push beyond these obstacles and seek deeper connection. Using flamenco's innate ability to embody and express the full range of the human condition, Maldonado and Lugo probe our emotional boundaries by questioning their very existence. De la Frontera underscores that flamenco does not understand nor accept borders; rather it is our means of connection and expression, giving the artist power to supersede these limitations. Hailed by the New York Times for his "bursts of brilliance and uncommon invention," Maldonado is the winner of the 2019 Premio Artista Revelación at the XXIII Festival of Jerez, an award for best up-and-coming artist. His last commission for Flamenco Vivo was heralded as "the rare flamenco group piece that doesn't stifle the individual spirit."

About Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana
Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of America’s premier flamenco companies with home bases in New York City and Durham, NC. We serve more than 40,000 people nationwide each year through far-reaching programs that entertain, educate and empower. Our mission is to promote flamenco as a living art form and a vital part of Hispanic heritage; produce and perform high quality dance works; provide arts education programs that catalyze connections among young people; and nurture the next generations of Spanish dance artists and educators. We believe that the universal spirit of flamenco – with diverse influences from Arab, Jewish, Roma, Spanish, African and Latin American cultures – gives this art form a unique power to build bridges between people.
