We close our season of performances on the Frederick C. Tillis Performance Hall main stage in much the same fashion as we opened it - with a masterful and mesmerizing program of percussive kineticism and graceful movement. 

Founded in 1983, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana is one of America's premier flamenco companies. Based in New York City and Durham, North Carolina, the company seeks to promote flamenco as a living art form and a vital part of Hispanic heritage; produce and perform high quality dance works; provide arts education programs that catalyze connections among young people; and nuture the next generations of Spanish dance artists and educators. Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana believes the universal spirit of flamenco - with diverse influences from Arab, Jewish, Roma, Spanish, African, and Latin American cultures - gives the art form a unique power to build bridges between people. 

FRONTERAS is a new work choreographed by two of flamenco's most exciting artists: Jose Maldonado and Karen Lugo, with an original score by Jose Luis de la Paz. FRONTERAS asks, "What is stronger - what unites us or what separates us?" The New York Times hails FRONTERAS as offering "an uncommonly deft balancing of the individual and the group in flamenco, and solid entertainment to boot."
