“A fresh and joyful take on traditional and contemporary flamenco.” – Theasy.com
De la Frontera is a new evening-length work choreographed by José Maldonado and Karen Lugo, with an original score by Jose Luis de la Paz. De la Frontera is an investigation of life and connectedness. It asks: “What is stronger - what unites us or what separates us?” Despite the barriers we inevitably encounter from the moment we enter this world; we are driven to push beyond these obstacles and seek deeper connection. Using flamenco’s innate ability to embody and express the full range of the human condition, Maldonado and Lugo probe our emotional boundaries by questioning their very existence. De la Frontera underscores that flamenco does not understand nor accept borders; rather it is our means of connection and expression, giving the artist power to supersede these limitations. Hailed by the New York Times for his “bursts of brilliance and uncommon invention," Maldonado is the winner of the 2019 Premio Artista Revelación at the XXIII Festival of Jerez, an award for best up-and-coming artist. His last commission for Flamenco Vivo was heralded as “the rare flamenco group piece that doesn’t stifle the individual spirit.”
