The third-annual Flamenco Fest welcomes patrons to sample the arts of traditional and progressive flamenco dance. The festival begins Saturday with "Por Amor Flamenco: A Tribute to 'La Chiqui.’" Recognizing revered dance teacher Carmen Linares, the program will feature classical Spanish forms in which castanets clack and fringed manton shawls swirl. A'lante Flamenco Dance Ensemble closes the first night with "The Red Shoes: A Flamenco Fairytale," a flamenco adaptation of that classic ballet based on Hans Christian Andersen's dark fairy tale. Telling the tale of a vain girl cursed to dance forever in her beautiful red shoes, the shoes weaves a dark fable of the dangers of narcissism and improper color coordination.
On Sunday, Raices de Arte Espanol presents "Las Raices del Flamenco,” blending old and new styles under the direction of "La Chiqui" herself. Her husband, guitarist Jose Linares "El Patriarca,” provides lively accompaniment. The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Flamenco Dance Program bookends the festival with "Por Amor Flamenco: Ambiente," featuring a slate of local soloists—including the dramatic, almost severe style of Jackie Rodriguez-Navar, or “La Morena”—showing off distinctly modern dance moves.
The Cameo Theatre
The Cameo Theatre's Egyptian art-deco-style setting lures wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened to house vaudeville acts and showcase movies, but has since opened its stage to a number of legendary performers, such as B.B. King and Metallica, and now regularly hosts theatrical productions.
