About the event

Arte y Pasión, in conjunction with Brick at Blue Star is proud to present BELEN MAYA'S YO QUIERO SER HUMANA.

BRICK AT BLUE STAR ARTS COMPLEX SOCIAL HOUR 7PM CURTAIN 7:30PM BRICK AT BLUE STAR ARTS COMPLEX 108 Blue Star

HUMANA shows Belén’s experiences in life and dance, telling the story of discipline, repetition, triumph, failure, pain, body, emptiness, music, focus, fear and overcoming. Belén engages the audience in the creative process through storytelling, improvisation, games, and movement, sharing the creative process as a space of ritual, adventure, childhood, intuition and gifts. This production is never the same, as it involves audience interaction, with a different trajectory and outcome each time. HUMANA is the inspiring story that displays the vulnerability, imperfection, and fallibility of the artist… showing that creation is made of common, everyday elements that we can recognize in our own lives.

Belén Maya comes to San Antonio from Sevilla, Spain to present this work. Maya has been called one of the most important flamenco dancers of this century. As the daughter of the legendary Mario Maya, who single-handedly revolutionized flamenco through his choreography and large-format company, Belén Maya was born into greatness. However, Belén has managed to build a stellar reputation that’s based more on her own work and personal style than on her family name. Belén is a tremendously prolific artist, with work oscillating between the traditional and the contemporary, and she regularly tours the world performing and teaching.

Arte y Pasión, a 501c3 organization founded and led by Tamara Adira, is a company known for pushing the boundaries of flamenco and Spanish dance, whose mission is to share, promote and develop the authentic art of flamenco as a vehicle of healing and restoration, and the promotion of human rights and equality. The company is one of the most contemporary flamenco companies in the United States and engages with acclaimed flamenco artists via mentorship and co-performance, exploring artistic evolution and specific subject matter to elevate the purity of flamenco to a singular, sacred and unforgettable moment.

The performance will take place on Thursday Mar 21 and Wednesday Mar 27 at Brick at Blue Star Arts Complex at 108 Blue Star, San Antonio, Texas, 78204. Social Hour is 7pm, curtain is at 7:30pm.

Admission is $30 in advance, $36 the day of the show or at the door.
