Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia, like Georges Bizet’s iconic opera about a passionate gypsy, is riveting from start to finish. The physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with the subtleties of the Spanish paso doble and flamenco dances. A stunning set design by Luis Crespo and minimalist black-and-white costumes by fashion designer David Delfin evoke the paintings of Pablo Picasso. Highly original and full of elaborate partnering, CARMEN.maquia is a bold and electrifying reimagining of this tragic tale.
