Concept, Choreography and Musical Composition: Juan Manuel Fernandez Montoya – “Farruquito”
Duration: Approx. 90 min. No intermission.
Choreographer, artistic director and music composer Juan Manuel Fernandez Montoya – “Farruquito” brings to Dubai Opera his latest masterpiece from the magical world of Flamenco and the essence of his Gypsy heritage, combined with his distinguished touch.
In his own words, Farruqito offers glimpses of his upcoming show: “With this performance, I will unveil my most personal side –staying true to traditional roots, while also presenting the current state of Flamenco, as I see it. I will revive the best moments from past performances while integrating new creations, always maintaining that special energy. With the presence of the Bailaoras (female Flamenco dancers), we will capture the pure Gypsy essence present in so many real-life moments with family, weddings, and other celebrations. This is something that cannot be taught in a studio; it is learned through real-life experiences. I will also show improvisation, the origin of Flamenco, without losing sight of the overall choreographic structure of the show. Both of these elements are a part of my learning process. I am constantly pulling inspiration from the different periods of Flamenco that I have had the luck of witnessing in my life, along with the irreplaceable influence of Flamenco song and guitar. I will unveil my creative process and role as both musician and dancer. This performance is an original creation of music, lyrics and choreography. Song, guitar, percussion – each musician plays a crucial role in this creation as a soloist, not mere accompaniment – every person who sings, plays an instrument, or dances is a protagonist in this show. All of them unite, like the beautiful coloured threads that come together to create the spectacular shawl of Flamenco.” – Juan Manuel Fernández Montoya “Farruquito”.
