Thu, Sep 6 - Sun, Sep 16

227-1555, 7th Avenue, West Vancouver map

PalabraFlamenco presents La Palabra en el Tiempo, a 60-minute depth-charge of frenzieddance and guitar, troubled song, and English-language poetry: raw, proud,poised. Flamenco is an Andalusian art form associated with incessant emotionand restraint, percussive rhythms, and improvisation. Whether they speak,strum, sing, or knock it out on the floor with a shoe, the artists summon griefand praise that soak their way to dark corners. How to confront what’s buried?Hold death near, yet affirm life? Invite duende? This myth-inflected encounterhonours what we’ve lost, what we’re going to lose. “Sexy, uncomfortable…incredible” (Audience member, PeekFest)

“La Palabra enel Tiempo” is a phrase of Spanish poet Antonio Machado’s. The phrase has beentranslated: “the word in time,” “human language in which we feel time passing,”or “words that pick up the energy of time,” or “words that take their place,like drumbeats, in time already counted.”

A thunderousand lyrical POETRY+DANCE experience, tinged with fire and shadow.
