“Flamenco Puro” 1986

The passion and artistry of Spain graced the Mark Hellinger Theater in New York City, as “Flamenco Puro” (“Pure Flamenco”) opened on October 19, 1986 for a run of 40 performances.  The creating artist, Pablo Pena, had a lifelong love for the unique dance form.  In an interview, Pena stated, “Flamenco at its purest … emerged in the early 19th century from a poverty-stricken melting pot of Gypsies, Moors, Jews and Spaniards in southern Spain’s Andalusia region. It was originally an expression of song and dance that poignantly mirrored the people’s brutal persecution.”
