De Paso by Casa Patas Flamenco Foundation (Spain) Presented by FUNDarte Inc

FUNDarte and the Miami-Dade County Auditorium present De Paso, by Casa Patas Flamenco Foundation & Conservatory featuring Sara Pérez and Rubén Puertas on Saturday, November 6th at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 7th at 3:00 p.m. at Mid-Stage at Miami-Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135). Dancer and choreographer Sara Pérez makes her Miami premiere with a stunningly precise new work, De Paso (Along the Way), which reveals the choreographic virtuosity of this rising star in the realm of contemporary Flamenco. In a theatrical duet with firebrand dancer Rubén Puertas, De Paso employs the remarkable song, guitar, and percussion talents of four musicians as part of a dance work that uses the language of Flamenco to express the allure of the unknown, the fear of failure, and the joy of sharing life’s journey with others. Inspired by the verses of the popular Flamenco “cante” (song), De Paso is a performance that is about the road that we take on our journey through the world; it is about the points of encounter where different lives, temperaments, and feelings interrelate.

Award-winning choreographer and dancer Siudy Garrido is recognized for her contemporary work in flamenco. Her company has collaborated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and flamenco stars Farruquito and Antonio Canales.
