With MAGNETIKAE, La Otra Orilla launches its flamenco onto an ice floe. Against a frosty backdrop, a dancer, a singer and two musicians embark on a poetic winter journey. A magnetic shock.

La Otra Orilla is truly at the forefront of contemporary flamenco. Revisiting the codes of this dance form originally from Andalusia, the company has developed its own unique style. Since 2006, Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja have been presenting culture- blending shows. This new work enlists the rich contrasts between winter and flamenco to compose a saga of distant places, foreignness and exile. It constructs a world where vigorous dance, naturally infused with warmth, collides with an imaginary land of ice, in a fusion deftly enhanced by the music, sets, lighting and costumes. A flamenco tale set somewhere in the frozen North.

Tickets start at $31.00
