The Village Theatre and Art Gallery will be bringing a little bit of Spain to downtown Danville on Thursday (Nov. 7), as a continuation of its World Music Series and town staff are inviting residents to spend “A Night in Spain,” for some Flamenco music and dance.
Earlier this year, the Village Theatre gave the community a feel for the music of Portugal. Now the town is inviting residents across the Iberian Peninsula for a performance of Flamenco presented by the Bay Area based Matiz Flamenco.
Dedicated to developing a stronger community for Flamenco music and dance while also educating future performers about the art form, Matiz Flamenco has brought the passion and energy of Flamenco to audiences throughout the Bay Area.
At Thursday’s showing attendees will have the opportunity to witness first hand the collaborative art form that town staff say is constantly evolving and “has gone through many changes and refinements over the years.”
Declared as one of the masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010, Flamenco is described as an artistic expression that fuses song, dance and musicianship. Southern Spain is the heartland of flamenco, although it has its roots in regions throughout Spain.
Town Staff say A Night in Spain features the talents of singer/dancer, Yuli Sayuri (the director of Matiz Flamenco), singer/dancer Melina Berkov-Rojas, Guitarist Gopal Slavonic and guitarist/dancer Roberto Aguilar.
A Night in Spain is set to be held at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery, 233 Front St., Thursday (Nov. 7) at 7:30 p.m.
Ticket are $30, or $15 for students with a valid ID. Tickets can be [www.danville.ca.gov/villagetheatre purchased online, by phone at 314-3400, or at the Village Theatre Box Office, which is open Wednesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m.
