"Voces Del Sur" Dances Its Way To Stillwater

Flamenco Vivo presents "Voces Del Sur" March 13.

Travel to Andalucía, a mysterious region in Southern Spain, in Flamenco Vivo, Carlota Santana’s newest production, “Voces del Sur.” The performance features Flamenco Vivo dancers and musicians paying tribute to the unique culture of Andalucía. See “Voces del Sur” at 8 p.m. March 13 in the OSU Seretean Center Concert Hall.

Known as the “cradle of flamenco,” Andalucía is home to a diverse group of cultures, languages and traditions. Arabic, Gypsy, Jewish and Sephardic influences have blended over centuries to give this area in southern Spain the unique culture it has today. “Voces del Sur” pays tribute to the rich diversity of dance, music, art and literature of the region through impressive dancing and music.

“We’re very excited to bring a performance that presents such a unique cultural experience,” said Brandon Mitts, Arts, Culture and Entertainment manager. “Carlota Santana is internationally renowned, and I look forward to the Stillwater community being able to experience it.”

Carlota Santana has been called “The Keeper of Flamenco,” in recognition of her productions that include and highlight the flamenco art. Santana helped found Flamenco Vivo in 1983 and has contributed greatly to its success. Under her direction, the company has presented works including mixtures of various dance techniques and Hispanic-American influences. With “Voces del Sur,” Santana has created a one-of-a-kind production that draws audience members in with every moment.

Tickets for the performance are $10 for children 12 and under to $20 for adults. Tickets can be purchased online at tickets.okstate.edu.  For more information, contact the OSU Allied Arts office at (405) 744-7509 or allied.arts@okstate.edu.
