Flamenco Rebelde Present:
Second Event  


On May 6th, 2012, join flamenco dancer La Magdalena and her new collective, 
"Flamenco Rebelde," to continue the explosive celebration filled with the pride and heritage of Cinco de Mayo

The culmination of a yearlong collaboration, this performance marks the stage  
debut of Flamenco Rebelde, a student collective shaped by La Magdalena, musician / composer Nathan Herrera, and dozens of emerging  dancers. The unique and eccentric personalities of its members help bring to life  the pride, passion, love, sorrow, and transformative nature of flamenco.  Performers stamp their beats in unison as singers intertwine their soulful  melodies, transporting guests to the festive streets of the Spanish gypsies. 

La Magdalena and Flamenco Rebelde present “N a v e g a n d o” An explosive celebration coinciding with the pride and heritage of Cinco de Mayo continued!

About La Magdalena

When not teaching, performing, or choreographing in NYC, Magdalena continues her lifelong training under legendary gypsy families Farruco, Vargas, Carrasco, and Fernandez. In 1993 she started her dancing career in New York City, cutting her teeth on the makeshift "tablaos" of then popular clubs Alegrías, Kaña, and Xunta. Since then Magdalena has toured as guest artist with companies around the U.S., including Pasion y Arte, Flamenco Triana, American Bolero Dance, and Juanito Pascual.

As a free-lance artist Magdalena is involved in many diverse projects. She leads Arts in Education programs, has coached opera singers (most notably Janara Kellerman of NYC Opera) in preparation for "Carmen", recorded flamenco footwork for pop singer Antony & The Johnsons, and is currently featured in several documentaries about the journey of a foreign flamenco dancer. Magdalena has been awarded grants from The Field and Fractured Atlas for her 
work as an independent performance artist.

Inspired by her mentors, Magdalena integrates her unique educational and musical background to teach the art of Flamenco to students of all ages and backgrounds. She is best known for her musicality and personal teaching style. When not giving workshops across the U.S. or performing, she can be found dancing and singing "por fiesta" on the streets of her second home, Sevilla.

About Flamenco
The evolution of flamenco is bound with the history of Andalucía, where over the centuries Europe mingled with Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. Slowly transformed through the power and influence of gypsy culture, Andalusian music and dance came to run the full gamut of emotions- from the anguish of the seguiriya and soleares, to the sensuality of the tangos, or the taunting irony of the bulería. Today traditional flamenco still carries with it an expressive charge, capturing an often-indescribable energy. Voice, guitar, hand clapping and dance overlap in countless patterns to create an eruption of emotion, which – though often improvised - adheres to a strict rhythmic structure of the compás. Flamenco performers are uniquely expressive. The result is an ensemble that communicates everything from passions and joy to pathos and rebellion.
