This dancer from Cadiz brings us beyond the conventions of flamenco at the Teatre Tívoli
Sara Baras is one of the most famous flamenco “bailaoras” today. She began performing in 1989, when she received her first award for her talent, the “Gente Jóven” Prize from Televisión Española. Since then, she’s had nothing but success, and she even won the National Spanish Dance Award in 2003 for her show entitled ‘Mariana Pineda’. Baras has been touring Spain with her project ‘Sombras’ (Shadows) since 2017, and now she is coming back to Barcelona for four weeks to show us how the art of flamenco can be delicate and unique. The choreography is backed by a magical stage setting, which continues to use the tradition of the Andalusian musical style yet takes us a step further, in a dimension that promises to leave goose pimples. The “bailaora” will take us on a journey through times, colours, silence and noise, from solitude to multitude and from light to shadows. Sara Baras adopts the concept of shadows and then transforms it and surprises her audiences on a tour through which we can all acknowledge her talent.
With ‘Sombras’, Baras is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the founding of her dance company, which has premiered 13 shows and held more than 4,000 performances all over the world. This project will be onstage Wednesdays to Sundays from the 25th of April to the 19th of May at different times. All the performances will be held at the Teatre Tívoli.
Show tickets are priced starting at 25 euros. You can buy them in advance on the Grup Balañá website.
