Starring Compañia Flamenca Eduardo Guerrero
WGO’s 2018-19 Season opens with Compañia Flamenca Eduardo Guerrero, direct from Cadiz, Spain, presenting “Flamenco Pasión,” a program specifically crafted for North American audiences. Eduardo Guerrero, the critically-acclaimed flamenco dancer and choreographer, uses his eclectic style, combining classical and contemporary Spanish dance, ballet, and contortion, to express the depth of passion and skill exhibited in the many styles of this beloved, Spanish art form.
Dance Magazine has named Eduardo Guerrero one of their “25 to Watch in 2018”, calling him “flamenco in its richest current incarnation,” and raving about his “astonishing endurance” and “breathtaking array of movement that often pushes him to the perilous limits of human motion.” In 2017, one of his programs earned the Audience Award at the world-renowned Jerez Flamenco Festival, and other career highlights include performances at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Madrid Fashion Week 2016, and the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow.
