Russian Cossaks

Uncategorized

Background

The Cossacks of Russia were founded in 1990 as a professional company of folk dancers, singers and musicians, now justly considered among the very best of their kind.  They perform all over Russia and abroad: France, Spain, Germany, Greece Portugal, China, etc.  They participated in the Edinburgh Festival and Edinburgh Military Tattoo, 2001.  According to Kathryn Smith, The Scotsman, the public must: “forget River-dance. This is group dance at its best and most entertaining.  The music in itself is worth a visit.  This company is considered to be the best in the world.”

The ensemble of about 40 also consists of singers and musicians, and the entire performance is a tour de force of folk culture. The variety of musical forms and rhythms range from swelling laments to high-octane wild sword dances.  Each dance and song includes the traditional Kalinka and Gypsy dance.  It is a measure of the heart and soul each player puts into their performance that their eyes glisten during the moving Destiny Song.

As the Cossacks were the only people in Russia never to be enslaved, their dance and song culture, banned under Stalin, has always been a badge of honor.  This splendid juggernaut of a performance conveys this pride in their noble heritage.

Each performer, in common with the performance itself, is a whirlwind.  Just as one dancer has completed ten or so high speed pirouettes, he bows, does it again, then joins the ten-piece balalaika orchestra to play trumpet before jumping to join the singers.  The quality of each sequence is consistently high and the pace of the whole performance will leave the audience breathless and exhausted.

For centuries the Cossacks have been a vital part of Russian culture and were even identified with the entire Russian people.  In Leo Tolstoy’s words, “all Russian history was made by Cossacks; no wonder Europeans call us that.” Fleeing from oppression and poverty, their ancestors settled all along the southern frontiers of the Tsardom, stretching for thousands of miles from Poland to the Pacific.  They were a fiercely independent, warlike, roving and unruly race, with their own customs and way of life.  In the eighteenth century the crown finally managed to incorporate them as a privileged military estate.  Since then Cossack units, mostly light horse, fought with distinction in every major campaign, having much to do with the destruction of Napoleon’s Grand Army, and fielding some 300,000 men during WWI.  Today the Cossacks still retain their unique folklore, which has Russian, Ukrainian and other sources, even those borrowed from their ancient foes, the tribes of the Caucasus.  Hence the amazing variety of musical forms and rhythms from swelling laments to wild sword dances.

The word “kazak” originally meant nomad horseman, or “freebooter.”  From the time of Genghis Khan, mounted bands had been roaming the undulating plain to the north of the Caspian and Black Seas.  Some of the great Russian writers turned to the Cossacks as a source of free inspiration.  Gogol produced the epic “Taras Bulba” about one of their legendary leaders. Yul Brynner brought his native Russian background to bear in telling fashion on the title role in the Hollywood adaptation of  “Taras Bulba.”  Here, the rich but uneducated leader teaches his book-learning sons the ways of their people in the Ukraine.  A stereotype of this period, caught in another feature film based on Pasternk’s Doctor Zhivago, is of unregenerate Cossacks wielding their whips and even their swords against peaceful demonstrators.  And so, descendants of the untamed outlaws of earlier times became the last defenders of the Romanov dynasty.

Tragically for the Cossacks, the new leaders did not care for semi-autonomous hosts of Cossacks on the fringes of the Soviet Union, however many of them had been prepared to switch loyalties from the Whites to the Reds during the Civil War following the Russian revolution.  The collapse of the Soviet Union has brought about something of a revival among the Cossacks.  If they have not reverted to their traditional roles, they are at liberty to present as they themselves choose the music, songs and dances developed over the centuries and capturing in an inimitable manner the spirit of their dauntless, free-roving ancestors.

Uncategorized

Background

The mountainous region of Caucasian has been the scene of battles, historical moments, and a vibrant energy that has given it’s inhabitants a unique way of seeing and living life. The dance has been the clearest manifestation of the social order, tradition and feelings of it’s people from generation to generation… Because of this background, the information of their folkloric dance: “The Amazing Children of Georgia” brings to the audience an awesome compendium of values and principals that have enabled them to face their future.

“The Amazing Children of Georgia” have inherited the skills, dexterity, and mastery from their teachers: “The National Georgian Ballet”, who have trained these youngsters from ages 7 to 13 since 1995 under the direction of Gia Davitashvili, a former choreographer and solo dancer of said ballet.

These Little Virtuosos start their training at a very young age; some as young as 4. They study normal academic courses along with the Georgian or Caucasian folkloric dance. They say the Georgians carry the music and dance in their veins. This instinct, combined with the theory, history and choreography of the traditional dance, makes the performance of “The Amazing Children of Georgia” a truly dazzling experience.

These children are veritable athletes, possessing breathtaking strength and virility that takes you back to the ancient battles of the regions of Georgia. You will also see romantic scene depicting the courtship of the young bride to be and of their traditional marriage ceremony.

Without a doubt these children offer two hours filled with electrifying excitement, passion, and colorful pageantry combined with thrilling live music that will entertain and delight the entire family.

Carmen Maria Carrasco

Flamenco

Esta nueva producción de Carmen, una adaptación del clásico de Merimée, con música flamenca en vivo y una cuidada coreografía ha sido totalmente ideada por María Carrasco. Ha creado desde el guión adaptado, el montaje y la coreografía hasta el diseño del vestuario, que incluye una espectacular bata de cola de quince metros que simula una plaza de toros.

​Veinte artistas sobre el escenario, cuatro músicos y dieciséis bailarines, el espectáculo incluye danza española, flamenco, tango, y danza contemporánea, además de cambios de escenografía, de vestuario y un deslumbrante montaje de luces. Este espectáculo, Carmen, fue finalista en el tema de mejor espectáculo de danza en la VII edición de los premios Max de teatro.

​María carrasco llevó Carmen a los escenarios de varios países y cosechó el éxito del público y la crítica en Madrid, donde permaneció en cartel más de tres meses. La producción posee una escenografía cuidadosamente pensada, un llamativo vestuario y un cuerpo de baile magistral para esta nueva versión del clásico mito de la mujer española, apasionada y racial.

​Una original mirada femenina sobre este mito universal que María carrasco explica así: “Mi visión de Carmen cambia con los años, es una obra que crece con el tiempo. Cuánto más te acercas a ella descubres nuevos matices y diferentes perfiles de esta mujer tan contemporánea. No he querido olvidar la importancia que tiene la interpretación teatral para cada uno de los personajes que es expresada y transmitida a través de la danza”.

​Para María carrasco, el personaje de Carmen ejerce una fascinación especial: “El hecho de que sea una mujer salvaje, de que no respete las normas establecidas, sus ansias de libertad, sus ganas de satisfacer sus propios instintos, esa rebeldía que la lleva a transgredir la moral de su época, producen una fuerte atracción”.

Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia

Tango

Background

This is a story which represents something which is desired, but unobtainable. A journey created by dreams of the South, and on this journey to live experiences through feelings. In the beginning….

Happiness.  A journey filled with scents, colors and light. The clean air of the sunshine coasts, the perfume of the blossom and the jasmine, the infinite explosion of the spring celebration, the way they live here. This joy cannot be conceived without being shared, openly expressing oneself, conveying oneself and proving oneself without consideration, in a stream of almost strident emotions. And in comparison….

Tragedy.  The devastating end, the loneliness of the dry lands and the lack of people, the pain caused by the absence brought by death, the injustice of the wars that kill without reason, the deep sadness that drowns everything apart from the cry of pain in which one takes refuge from the universal grief in a South Andalusian way. The only way to leave it behind is….

Passion.  Uncontrollable vibrations that provoke a shivering sensation. Through the magic that moves the most powerful of emotions, instantly understand the love, the desire, the sensuality that transports us to new dimensions, to euphoric pleasure, almost to the edge of insanity.

Three emotions. An invented journey, but at the same time more real than any other. Through the journey, lose yourself in the real South and learn to feel without regards to the consequences. Succumb to the perception, the life and one expression only: Flamenco.
