Heir to one of the most revered Gypsy flamenco dynasties in Spain, Farruquito returns to the Center with his brand new show Farruquito Flamenco as part of its North American Tour.
In this new production, Farruquito has blended his own original music and choreography and expanded his company with additional musicians and dancers to honor the historic lineage of flamenco.
When Farruquito was 15, his grandfather, El Farruco, then patriarch of the flamenco dynasty, passed away. Farruquito became the heir of the Farruco flamenco lineage. That same year, he created his first show, RaícesFlamencas (Flamenco Roots), which not only distinguished his mastery as a dancer but also gave him theopportunity to showcase the traditions of his prodigious flamenco line. Since then Farruquito has gone on to perform all over the world.
Farruquito Flamenco comes to the West Coast for the first time blending intricate rhythmic foot patterns – performed at harrowing speeds – with elegant and expressive body movements. With his ensemble of dancers, singers and musicians, Farruquito displays his technical prowess, dramatic flair and sense of invention.
