Critically acclaimed director, choreographer, and lead dancer, Maria Bermudez Officially celebrated by the city of Jerez de la Frontera as an Ambassador of Gypsy culture, brings her internationally successful Sonidos Gitanos (Gypsy Sounds) back to Los Angeles for two nights only at the El Portal Mainstage Theatre in North Hollywood on November 18 and 19, featuring master musicians from her adopted home of Jerez, the “birthplace of Flamenco.” Since 1995, Sonidos Gitanos has presented California audiences unique opportunities to experience Flamenco in its most authentic form, laced with spontaneity, improvisation and highlighting the most accomplished dancers Spain offers with distinctive and ever-evolving performances.
Onstage, Bermudez invokes the traditions she knows intimately from her earliest days of study under the great dancer and Patriarch, El Farruco (whose great-grandsons grace international stages today). Through a ConVivencia – in the sense of Community or “a life lived,” the respected artist, teacher and choreographer seeks to strengthen the connection between the Andalusian elders and her southern California communities. For the first time, Bermudez and the great musicians of Sonidos Gitanos share the stage with a group of stunning young professionals from Santa Barbara. This quinteto of young artists include Jocy Cardenas, Amanda Cuevas, Marisa Haro, Sabrina Ibarra, and Talia Vestal.
Tickets range from $40–$75. El Portal MainStage Theatre is located at 5269 Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood. For tickets and information, call (818) 508-4200 or go to www.elportaltheatre.com. Like us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/SonidosGitanosFlamenco.
