PRESENTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE FOUNTAIN THEATRE.
Flawless in his footwork, celebrated flamenco dancer Jesús Carmona makes his Ford Theatres debut with the West Coast premiere of his newest piece. Jesús and his company of 11 dancers, musicians and vocalists will perform this innovative and emotionally charged program, titled Impetus (“bursting with energy”). The piece stars Jesús, who also choreographs and directs this powerful dance interpretation of the most famous scores from Spain’s beloved composers, including Albeniz, Riqueni and Escudero. A dance prodigy – he began his career at age seven — Jesús has shared the stage with Spain’s most legendary dancers and was a principal dancer with the prestigious Ballet Nacional de España for three years before creating his own award-winning company.
Part of the IGNITE @ the FORD! series, made possible through the generous support of LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. Proceeds benefit the Ford Theatre Foundation.
