A solo show, this experimental contemporary dance theatre work incorporates text, movement, percussive footwork, circus feats, street busking and more to a score of music by Roma women. Belen Maya, an innovator and critically acclaimed performing artist, became instantly recognized around the world in Carlos Suara's 1995 film Flamenco. In Romnia (women in the Romani language), Maya performs "many women at the same time...whose laughter and mourning have become movement and beauty." (Joaquin Lopez Bustmante). Her work at KU is made possible by the Janet Hamburg Guest Artist Fund.
