With a new program of innovative and edgy repertoire, Rebeca Tomás, brings her A Palo Seco Flamenco Company back to Theatre 80 Saint Marks from May 17 to 19, presenting a new production, "Cinco Por Cinco." Tomás, a fierce and feminine NY-based Flamenco artist, will direct her company of five dancers, two singers and three musicians in a show that promises to be true to her vision of upholding Flamenco's traditions while also pushing its boundaries and giving it a distinctive New York City feel.

The evening will feature the premier of two new choreographies. "Cinco por Cinco," the production's namesake, will feature the cast of five female dancers in a rhythmic call-and-response, each using one of five percussive elements within Flamenco: Zapateo (Footwork), Palmas (Rhythmic Hand-Clapping), El Abanico (the Spanish Fan), Castanuelas (Castanets), and el Baston (the Percussive Cane). The second piece, "La Farruca," which is a typically masculine-style of Flamenco dance, will be set as a duet for two females, clad in high-wasted pants and bolero jackets. The piece will capitalize on the linear nature of this dance style with its heel-turns and musically intricate footwork. Musical accompaniment will include guitar, violin, and a female vocalist who plays an integral role in the choreography.
