Flamenco fire: Juan Siddi at the Lensic
Fresh off high-profile engagements at the Joyce Theater in New York and the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the 14-member Juan Siddi Flamenco Santa Fe will be appearing at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St.), at 8 p.m. on three different evenings in July: Sunday, July 10; July 19; and July 23. Siddi recently created a group version of one of the most intense and passionate solo forms in flamenco, the siguiriyas. Between the new black fringed skirts, tight footwork for the group, great music, and fire from Siddi and guest performer Carola Zertuche, the new piece brings a shot of risk and determination to the company’s repertoire.
