EDUARDO GUERRERO – Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, Sat., Sept. 28
Lobero Theatre / 7:30 pm
Eduardo Guerrero is flamenco in its richest current incarnation. The Cádiz-born 34-year-old crafted a solid career in the companies of some of Spain’s most important dancers, including Eva Yerbabuena, Antonio Canales and Rocío Molina. However, his two solo shows, El callejón de los pecados («Sin Alley») and Guerrero («Warrior»), are what have brought Guerrero to the forefront of flamenco dance in Spain.
Guerrero has deftly created an entirely unique style built on a flawless technique that appeals to both flamenco purists and fans of innovation. While his aesthetic is contemporary, his physical language is rigidly traditional. No one can say Guerrero’s work is a product of fusion.
