This is not a flamenco piece.
In OneTwoThreeOneTwo, a pair of male dancers use their bodies and their voices to ask, what is flamenco?How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediate communication?
Flamenco is an ancient, but a living form. From the deepest roots of gypsy music to the grand stage productions of today, its power springs from the same fundamental rhythmical sequences: 123 123 12 12 12. The intimacy and audience interaction of the flamenco tablao generates a complex web of meaning, expression and storytelling – a unique set of rituals and techniques that continue to grow and evolve.
OneTwoThreeOneTwo breaks flamenco apart, examining each aspect of its singular magic.
