Energia ~ Fuerza ~ Pasion!...
World premier of " A la una".... a melding of Flamenco & Sephardic music, song and dance.
Experience the passion of Spain! Internationally acclaimed, Carolina and Carolé show combines the pulsating sounds of footwork,
song, castanets, syncopated hand clapping and guitar that paints a visual canvas in movement through dance embodied with an attitude. The relationship among these rhythmic essentials is riveting. If you have
not seen this mother-daughter duo, it's time to experience their high energy and passion for Flamenco & Spanish dance that the SF Chronicle
calls "tradition with a twist."
"Flamenco star Carolé Acuña brings the soul of Spain to San Francisco" - Peter Fish, Sunset Magazine
“Lugo is a woman with complicated memories and sorrows… When she dances, she conveys depths of melancholy, devilishness or joy through the apt placement of her torso. The tilt of her ribs, for example, is just right to create that essential image of dignity, slight arrogance and emotional daring without which Flamenco is just another collection of steps and tunes. As a musician she’s equally sophisticated, inhabiting the music in the middle of every beat, with a command that is neither haughty nor proud, but self-assured, at ease. She dances the way some French cook—with what appears to be a graceful inevitability discovered on the spot." ~ Ann Murphy, Dance Critic for Dance View West Magazine
"It is when Lugo and her daughter Carolé Acuña dance together that the women unearth a new dimension in dance..." ~ Ann Murphy, Oakland Tribune
