Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca in:
Entre TÚ Y Yo
October 31 through November 16 at Z Space
The creators of Antigona, the widely acclaimed and wildly popular flamenco adaptation of Sophocles’s Antigone, return to Z Space with their hit program Entre Tú Y Yo (Between You and Me). Created by internationally renowned company Noche Flamenca, founded by Artistic Director Martín Santangelo and dancer Soledad Barrio, Entre Tú Y Yo explores through dance the possibilities afforded and constraints imposed by relationships. Joined by some of Spain’s most celebrated flamenco artists, legendary dancer Soledad Barrio stars in this evening-length program of duets, solos, and ensemble works, conceived and directed by Martín Santangelo.
Praise for Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca
“A powerful work of flamenco and theatre. Potent and richly imagined. With the fearless and transfixing Soledad Barrio in the title role. Pulse-poundingly effective. Remarkable.”
—Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle (“Leaping Man” review for Antigona)
“What woman could hold a candle to Soledad Barrio? In modern dance, Isadora Duncan and Martha Graham. In ballet, maybe Nora Kaye, in her Tudor roles. Certainly no one we can go and see today has Barrio’s transformative power.”
—Tobi Tobias, Arts Journal
“My desires have been shaped by years of watching Ms. Barrio and her company, Noche Flamenca. This, of course, is the moment everyone has been waiting for.”
—Brian Seibert, The New York Times
“Authentic. Gorgeously ornamented yet propulsive melodies. A tremendous cast.”
—Apollinaire Scherr, Financial Times
"Soledad Barrio is a force of nature."
—Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
