Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco celebrates its 50th anniversary with a series of performances entitled: El Latir del Tiempo / The Beat of Time.
With the traditional colors, passion and character of flamenco, Theatre Flamenco will present some of the most internationally renowned artists from Spain: Pastora Galván, one of the top international dance stars of flamenco who made her professional debut with Theatre Flamenco at the age of 15, and flamenco singer Juana la del Pipa, who hails from a dynasty of artists from the flamenco cradle of Jerez de la Frontera in Southern Spain.
El Latir del Tiempo/The Beat of Time will feature reprised and new works choreographed by Mexican-born Carola Zertuche, artistic director of Theatre Flamenco. Along with the five-decade landmark for the dance company, Zertuche is also celebrating her 10th anniversary at the helm of Theatre Flamenco. She herself is a world-acclaimed performer, whose productions have been called some of the most innovative programs staged in California.
Born in Torreón, México, Zertuche began her dance career in Mexico City’s Tablao Mesón de Triana, where she shared the stage with renowned flamenco artists such as Domingo Ortega, Juan de Angélica, Antonio Rey, El Kiki, and Luisa de Cadiz. After studying in Spain with renowned artists Ciro, Belén Maya, Andres Marín, Israel Galván, and jota master Pedro Azorín, she moved to San Francisco to continue her career as a performer, choreographer, and teacher at Theatre Flamenco.
Zertuche has toured throughout Mexico, the United States, and the Middle East with highly revered flamenco companies, including Maria Benitez Teatro Flamenco. She has danced in important American venues such as the Joyce Theatre in New York, the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Western Massachusetts, the Lensic in Santa Fe, the Tablao Flamenco in Albuquerque, and the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. Zertuche received an Individual nomination for the prestigious Isadora Dance Award ("Izzies”) in 2002 for the performance "Solea".
