Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre
Flamenco, the product of several cultural sources, from the Gypsies of Spain's Andalusia region to the Arab world, relies on a rich history, but it also continually evolves, especially when artists like Susana di Palma are its keepers. This fall her Zorongo Flamenco presents Romeria/Marchita, an epic, two-part project based on the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca. Romeria took place last month outdoors at Minnehaha Falls. There, the audience, along with the dancers, began a pilgrimage of sorts, captured on film by video artist Lynn Lukkas. Part 2 will be onstage at the Southern Theater, but the images from the park will play a role, bridging the natural and dramatic worlds.
