Poetry translates to Flamenco

-A A +A

The third annual Fiesta Primavera will be presented by the Pajarito Spanish Dance Alliance at 3 p.m., Sunday in the Pajarito Room of the historic Fuller Lodge.
This year’s theme, “La Poesía del Baile,” or “The Poetry of the Dance,” focuses on the poetry of flamenco music and how it is interpreted by the dance.
Ellen Walton, “Elena,” founder of the organization, directs this year’s show in which she and eight of her local students will perform along with guest artists from Taos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
Guests include, singer La Megue, guitarist Ronaldo Baca, and dancers Sara de Luz, Tamara Baca and Catalina Rio Fernandez. Catalina will be joined by her company, Flamenco Nuevo Mexico.
Flamenco song reflects every joy and sadness in life, often times conveying both extremes in the same song.
“La Poesía del Baile,” will take the audience on a fantastical journey to southern Spain through poetry, melody and movement.
Refreshments follow the show. Reservations can be made at 412-0104 or PajaritoSpanishDance@hotmail.com. Suggested donations are $10 for adults, $5 for children. Fuller Lodge is located at 2132 Central Ave.
