About the Event
The event is FREE and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Doors open at 7:00 and the performance starts at 7:30pm. Passion for flamenco dance takes the Indian-American filmmaker to Jerez(Spain). Encounters with the local gypsy and non-gypsies blossom into friendships as the filmmaker tries to understand the “Flamenco Syndrome”: the inexplicable seduction by these mysterious songs and addiction to dance. As the music seeps into her pores, the filmmaker finds herself profoundly transformed by the songs, the dance, the people and landscapes. The film reflects on how to sing the songs of others and in the process reveal one’s essence in a foreign, predominantly gypsy culture that has an incredible attraction.
