Spanish Discipline Presents Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre

Posted by Jenna Ray on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013

Event Date/Time: Friday, Nov. 8, 2013 7:30 pm
Location: Edson Auditorium

The University of Minnesota, Morris Spanish Discipline will host Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre on Friday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m. in Edson Auditorium. One of the few American Spanish dance companies that present traditional flamenco programs and original theater flamenco works, Zorongo Flamenco is renowned for bringing the power, passion, and virtuosity of the art to audiences across the country. This event is free and open to the public.

Susana di Palma founded Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre in 1982. Under her direction, the company has gone on to produce innovative flamenco ballets that are both powerful and provocative theater experiences. Zorongo Flamenco’s work combines the passionate soul of Spain with the lively innovative spirit of America and relates to contemporary audiences in a way that few companies do.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Campus sponsors include the Spanish Discipline and student organizations Sigma Delta Pi and Vamos Juntos.

Additional information on the company and flamenco is available online.
