Flamenco as an art form is the result of a slow process of musical, cultural, and social alchemy born out of the soil of Andalusia. It is a monumental and exquisite mosaic consisting of an infinite collection of colours, forms, and origins which we know today thanks to the works of musical analysis, to social and cultural investigation, as well as to the actual studies of the art of Flamenco itself. History brings us news in the form of surprising, clarifying, and inspiring proven facts. Thence the idea behind the creation of this stage production, -- an exposé of Flamenco music and dance as we know them today, reminiscent of musical and choreographical repertory adopted or created by the Gypsies starting in the XVII century up until now. AVISO: BAILES DE JITANOS reveals to us through dance Andalusian, -- Gypsy and Non- Gypsy, African, Sephardic, Moorish, traditional, popular, pre-flamenco, and, finally, Flamenco musical styles.
