“Versos de la Tierra”

Theatrical work: “Verses from the Earth”

“En una noche sin luceros
Mujer sacerdotisa fuiste iniciada,

Con el trueno y el relampago
Mujer fuiste llamada…” 

–Silvia Nava, Flamenco Lyrics “por Solea”

The Planet has become an instrument of the humans. Humans now claim it with all their artifacts and products, and earth is at their disposal. The earth left unrewarded, even the humans that harvest the crops for other humans are the most unrewarded humans. Versos de la Tierra are born of the earth and cherish the earth that nourishes all of us, she is the one we must never abandon. The poets on the side of earth have recited their chants in all societies in all time. Versos de la Tierra salutes the marvelous songs born of the earth.

“Estampas de México”

Theatrical work: “Mexican Images”

“Salías del templo un día Llorona,

Cuando al pasar yo te vi…”

–Mexican Lyrics from “La Llorona”

The Americas, particularly Mexico and South America, have been home to many flamenco artists in the past. These artists have left a legacy whereby they have incorporated songs and music from the Americas into their flamenco repertoire. Numina Flamenco Theatre presents “Estampas Mejicanas”, an interpretation of Mexican folklore and music side by side with the language of flamenco. Mexico is an extaordinary country whose spirit and artistic heritage transcends to our time.
