Compania Flamenca Jose Porcel 

When: Thu., Sept. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Flamenco is drama in dance, a resilient yet powerful folk form that dates back some six centuries to the Gypsies of southern Spain. Insistent rhythms drive its sensual performers, colorfully costumed and reveling in a passionate celebration of life. Vanderbilt's Great Performances series kicks off its 2011-12 season with the esteemed Madrid troupe founded by the dashing José Porcel, who choreographed his first flamenco work 20 years ago and later established himself as a noted director and in-demand lead dancer. Live musicians and vocalists are key ingredients to this program's overall impact, as a premier touring ensemble returns to the U. S. and Canada in a thrilling new piece, "Gypsy Fire."
