BWW Review: JUAN SIDDI FLAMENCO SANTA FE– Gitano (Gyspy) Flavors of Steps, Sights, and Sounds
by Marsha Volgyi - Mar 28, 2016

On Tuesday, March 22, 2016, Juan Siddi Flamenco Santa Fe performed at The Joyce Theater. Earlier in the evening, I spotted three of their dancers a few blocks from the theater. It was quite easy to recognize them as dancers by their bun, make-up, and by their stature. So, I introduced myself and wished them 'merde' (a French word used by dancers for good luck). The three told me that they were excited to perform and explained the history of flamenco, both the music and the choreography. It was a spontaneous and an enlightening encounter-pre-show. While waiting for the performance to begin, I was glad to see that a large group of teens were in attendance. This gives me hope that our youth are still interested in watching live performances rather than relying on social media videos of trivial importance. The previous chance meeting combined with the adolescents in the theater started the night on a positive note for me. (more...)
