Forastero = Stranger
Forsteros is a Flamenco Suite created by Director Genevieve Guinn and Musical Director Gonzalo Grau that takes audiences on a journey—the journey that all foreign flamencos take when they decide to completely immerse themselves in the art form. It is the story of those who decide to follow their dreams and their heart, leave behind their family, friends, and culture, and dedicate themselves to their passion, knowing full well they will always be outsiders. Guinn and Grau bring together their own histories and artistic prowess along with those of many of the best flamenco dancers and musicians from across the US, from San Francisco to Washington, DC. This project, a culmination of ten years of collaboration between choreographer and composer, is dear to the director’s heart as it is her won personal story, as well as that of many of the guest artists feature, and will resonate with anyone who has found themselves in a foreign land among people they don’t know, and who don’t know them.
Austin Flamenco Academy is funded and supported in part by the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division. Founded in 2011 by Genevieve upon returning to her home town of Austin, the Austin Flamenco Academy has grown over the years to offer flamenco classes to all levels and ages, as well as special events like the Austin Feria and exclusive workshops with visiting guest artists. Whether you’re three years old or seventy-five, whether you’re just looking to test the waters or want to dedicate yourself to this art form professionally, whether you’re just looking for a fun event and want to study with some of the top artists in their field, Austin Flamenco Academy is the place for you!
