Ritmo del Tiempo is an original work by Omayra Amaya that features an international cast of master flamenco artists. This new, innovative work is influenced by both traditional and contemporary elements of flamenco and jazz. Ritmo uses the lens of flamenco to present a unique vision of our current times.
The show premieres new works including: Huellas y Sombras (footprints and shadows) reminisces about the people we have lost and how they remain within us. UNO (ONE) uses a simple rhythm as the cadence that connects and unites us in our shared experience. ROMA tells the story of Spanish Romani culture (gypsy culture) that is responsible for the creation and preservation of flamenco, it aims to raise cultural awareness through an authentic perspective, free of myths and stereotypes. DIALOGOS (Dialogues) crosses genre borders with guest artists participating in an artistic conversation through a collaborative vision, sound, and movement.
RITMO DEL TIEMPO takes on an engaging and non-traditional setting of flamenco arts by integrating all cast, both musicians and dancers, together in movement and storytelling. The show is intricately created with seamless scene changes and accompanied by original musical compositions.
