Milano Flamenco Festival – Rayuela

Duration: 90 minutes without interval

The Milano Flamenco Festival returns to the Teatro Strehler to the delight of fans of this extraordinary art, starring Marco Flores, who brings to The Piccolo the national premier of Rayuela, a new production written and directed by Francisco López. In this particular moment in history, the topicality of Flores’s work is more evident than ever.
Flamenco - an instrument and a record of time - will mark and celebrate the artist’s twenty years of career. Rayuela, Spanish for line, is the name of a traditional children’s game (“hopscotch” in English) and also the title of the novel by Julio Cortázar, considered to be the Argentinian author’s most important work. Here it is the source of inspiration for Marco Flores, a versatile artist of Gypsy origin who ranges from Flamenco, through classic Spanish dance, to the contemporary in the creation of his latest work, a metaphor for his career and his life. A return journey through time, beginning with the primordial impulse, rhythm, examining the milestones that have contributed to the creation of his style, right up to the moment when he looked back over his career and felt the need to return to his origins, this time as an attentive and sincere traveller, aware of the stories in his wake, with the desire to return to the essence of Flamenco and relive its full meaning as an artist of the 21st century, because Flamenco is that place without confines or limits where the creative impulse fully acquires meaning.
He will be accompanied by the elegant guitar-playing of Alfredo Lagos and one of the most appreciated cantaores of the moment, David Lagos, performing for the first time in Italy.

Milano Flamenco Festival is an event organised by Punto Flamenco AC with the artistic direction of Maria Rosaria Mottola and the support of the  Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte de España – Instituto Nacional de las Artes Escénicas y la Música (INAEM), the collaboration of the Spanish Tourism Organisation and AC/E Acción Cultural Española.
