“A PALO SECO“
at CITY WINERY, 1200 West Randolph Street, Chicago IL 60607
A Palo Seco is a phrase that refers to a bare-bones style of flamenco music, often consisting of singing or percussion alone. This stripped-down aesthetic has become a central theme in artistic director Rebeca Tomás’ choreography, characterizing her biggest departures from tradition, while also rooting her work in the emotional rawness that lies at the heart of the art of Flamenco.
Tickets: from $18–26 reserve seating. Tickets are limited!
Tickets available online HERE.
