Award-winning Flamenco Dancing Stars will perform in Hong Kong
Taking inspiration from the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire, four award-winning flamenco dancers from Spain, Carmen Cortes, Alejandro Granados, Rocio Molina, Carlos Rodriguez and their musicians are ready to take Hong Kong audiences on a journey from the passionate to the ethereal.
"Los 4 Elementos" (The Four Elements), presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department on December 18 and 19, brings the passionate fire of Cortes, the fluid dance of Molina, the earthy dance of Granados and the ethereal dance of Rodriguez.
The show will be featured in the Flamenco Festivals in New York, Miami, Boson and London from January to February, 2005.
Cortes, who received a Premio Max as best stage arts dancer for her production of "Yerma", will perform her part as "Fire" at the coming performance in Hong Kong.
