Eduardo Guerrero Flamenco in Lima 2019
Date: Saturday, 06 April 2019 - Sunday, 07 April 2019
The Gran Teatro Nacional in Lima presents Eduardo Guerrero, renowned and award-winning Spanish flamenco dancer, in April 2019 with his show “Guerrero”.
According to the Dance Magazine, “Eduardo Guerrero is flamenco in its richest current incarnation. The Cádiz-born 35-year-old crafted a solid career in the companies of some of Spain's most important dancers, including Eva Yerbabuena, Antonio Canales and Rocío Molina.
However, his two solo shows, El callejón de los pecados ("Sin Alley") and Guerrero ("Warrior"), are what have brought Guerrero to the forefront of flamenco dance in Spain.
Guerrero received the Audience Award at the 2017 Jerez Festival due in large part to Guerrero's astonishing endurance: Dancing for nearly an hour and a half straight, pausing only to change costumes (sometimes onstage), Guerrero tells the captivating story of his relationship with women. The archetypal roles of the mother, the lover and the friend, performed by three female singers, all demand a different emotional and physical response, allowing Guerrero to display a breathtaking array of movement that often pushes him to the perilous limits of human motion.
Guerrero has deftly created an entirely unique style built on a flawless technique that appeals to both flamenco purists and fans of innovation. While his aesthetic is contemporary, his physical language is rigidly traditional. No one can say Guerrero's work is a product of fusion.”
