Live Flamenco: Cómplices

 DC Premiere!
 May 23, 2019 at 7 pm
 Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain in DC

Cómplices (Partners in Crime) is born from a special partnership between flamenco guitar and dance - two artists, whose unique bond extends across art and personal life.  Both artists share an artistic vision of growth and innovation, while maintaining a deep connection to the tradition. The program features works by the masters of flamenco guitar such as Sabicas, Niño Ricardo, Manolo Sanlúcar, as well as original compositions by Santiago Lara.

Mercedes Ruiz, one of the most esteemed dancers in Spain today and winner of such respected flamenco dance awards as the Critics Award at the Jerez Festival and the Exhibition Award at the Seville Biennial, has been performing professionally since the age of seven, touring across Europe, Asia, and to the Eastern United States. In 2003, she started her own company, Compañía Mercedes Ruiz, and has created eight productions together with her husband, Santiago Lara.

Flamenco guitar virtuoso, composer, and producer Santiago Lara is, without a doubt, one of the most important names in the new generation of flamenco guitarists. He has received some of the most prestigious flamenco guitar awards including that of the Seville Biennial and the National Flamenco Art of Córdoba Award.
