Sara Baras


Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of her dance company, “Sombras” (shadows) is defined by its creator as a “gran farruca”. Sara Baras proposes with her last show a journey in time, through colors, silence and sound, crowd and solitude, light and shadows. “Sombras” is born out of the shadow of the “farruca”, that has accompanied Sara and grown with her. A new magical scenery that is unique, and has Sara’s signature all over it. She continues to cling to old school flamenco but taking us a step further into a new emotional dimension. Sara Baras takes the audience to new places where the can feel identified, where they can rest and wish to be part of the dance company. They wish to be a part of it to be able to feel, with every guitar chord, the “quejío” of the voices, to hang from the skirts of the costumes.
