Performance in Los Cristianos, Tenerife
"Evolución" by Carmen Mota @ Pirámide de Arona
"Evolución", the new Carmen Mota show that takes place in the "Pirámide de Arona", premiered on the 9th of october 2012. The nearly two-hour show involving 27 dancers creates a staging that reflects how the art of flamenco, step by step, can become a transgressive modernity, without forgetting tradition and customs.
"Evolución" is divided into two contrasting blocks. The first part uses Spanish dances where we see an unusual art world, involving Argentinean or contemporary tangos, boleros and regional dancing. On the other hand, the second part shows a more fused art with stunning pieces full of pure and traditional "flamenco" movements with contemporary influences.
The ticket price is 47 € (30% discount for residents purchase only at the box office). From 13 to 17 years: 23,50 €. Children under 12 are free.
