How should flamenco be defined today, by its classic references or its thirst for innovation, the maturity of experience or the creative risk of youth?
Three generations of flamenco dance’s leading solo bailaoras offer their own answers to these questions with Mujeres. Merche Esmeralda is not distracted by novelty: her dignified approach to dance is informed by her sense of timelessness. Belén Maya embraces dance and life as the unity of a woman’s body, mind and spirit. Rocío Molina, the youngest of the three dancers, distances herself from the harried “marketing” of dance and sits back to reflect. In silence or out loud, she denounces what she sees as the way to easy success.
