From July 20th to August 14th the 11th Muestra Andaluza de Flamenco at the Corral del Carbón de Granada will be held
Three series titled, “Grandes Voces del Flamenco”, “Muestra Andaluza de Baile” and “Guitarras en el Corral” will bring mostly young artists with tremendous talent.
“Grandes Voces del Flamenco”. A program of cante that offers an overview of the varied panorama of great flamenco voices. A very representative group of singers from all over Andalusia. They fit perfectly into the program with a wide variety of styles. This program intends to show the importance of both Granada singers, and those from other parts of the region, people worthy of being called “maestros”.
“Muestra Andaluza de Baile”. The dance program is based mainly on interesting young soloists who currently move in the dance panorama of Andalusia. In this edition we start out with some partnered dance. This format allows choreographic possibilities that combine well with the venue of the Corral. Then there will be the soloists, with some of the best dancers from previous years. Others will be appearing for the first time on this stage, young people with a very highly developed artistic and professional level. From Granada, some seasoned veterans who have graced the theaters of the world, as well as promising young talents we hope to encourage.
“Guitarras en el Corral”. This establishes the presence of high quality guitar with performances with some of the foremost, and most versatile guitarists of the current scene in Andalusia.
Complementary activities. This year we have the use of the excellent installations of the Centro Cultural Caja Granada Memoria de Andalucía where there will be a dance workshop, with the collaboration of Carmen de las Cuevas for the first time in the history of the Veranos del Corral. Muestra Andaluza de Flamenco will offer courses that parallel the program of performances. There will be a series of weekly courses in the various types of flamenco dance with an excellent group of teachers. The courses will receive students from all over the world. We hope to consolidate this offering and expand it in years to come, to make it an excellent tool to promote the program abroad.
Teachers of the workshops:
14 days of shows, from July 20th to August 14th, 2009, from Tuesday to Thursday, with the participation of 16 dance soloists, 7 singers and 2 guitarists.
