A’lante Flamenco presents Amor Fati, January 11 – 20 in Rollins Studio Theatre.
Love, death, passion, grief—the ingredients of any good flamenco song and, maybe not coincidentally, all the elements of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. A’lante Flamenco’s premiere work Amor Fati spins the famous tale of the two lovers fated to be separated by death—or are they?
A’lante Flamenco brings Orpheus and his world to life through fiery flamenco guitar, searing vocals, and flamenco dance by turns earthy and ethereal. Joining the company’s seven dancers and four musicians for Amor Fati is special guest Alex Ruiz—frontman of Del Castillo, the Night Mothers, and Chingon—whose voice, songs, and persona have been featured in such films as: Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City, and most recently Machete. Be prepared for a totally unique and immersive experience!
- All patrons, regardless of age, require a ticket to attend the performance.
This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
