Ballet Flamenco La Rosa Presents El Conde Dracula

Nov 24, 2018 & Nov 25, 2018 - at 8:00 PM - English

Ballet Flamenco La Rosa presents the World Premiere of El Conde Dracula. Created and choreographed by Artistic Director of BFLR, Ilisa Rosal, this work was inspired by Bram Stokers’ Dracula. This potent and vivid Flamenco Ballet connects with this timeless material to create a new incarnation of what is probably the most definitive work in this genre. In the play, a young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the midst of Eastern Europe. Harker is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray.

In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina's closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Abraham Van Helsing, the archenemy of Count Dracula, adds a special twist to the story, as Lucy's friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away. This production features 12 dancers and musicians, including six top artists directly from Spain led by Special Guest Artist Pepe Flores, one of the most important artists of his time, in the role of Count Dracula. He will be joined by dancers Agustin Barajas, Juan Mateo and Fran Bas along with singer Luis Moreno and guitarist Miguel Aguilera, who will create and perform original vocals and lyrics for the work. The story and characters help audiences relate to what is being expressed by the music and dance, which becomes a universal language. It creates an exciting and inspiring theater experience.

The Ekphrasis Project is an immersive, site-specific performance, conceived and branded by Dance NOW! Miami Artistic Directors and Choreographers Diego Salterini & Hannah Baumgarten. Ekphrasis creates dialogue between choreography and visual arts. The performances are unique, migrating events, where the audience is guided from station to station and drawn in to a multi layered arts experience—a forum for exploring the connections between performance and visual arts or architecture. The work presented is designed directly and inspired by the works on display, and can only be performed as such. It is not a dance performance in a museum, but instead, a unique iteration of the artwork through dance.
