Templanza by Casa Patas Flamenco Foundation in Seattle
Internationally renowned company Fundación Conservatorio Casa Patas presents ‘Templanza,’ choreographed and performed by José Jurado and featuring dancer Isabel Rodríguez.
Templanza explores the power of the creative impulse that can range from calming the spirit to erupting in deep emotions.
In Templanza, states José Jurado,
I bare my most inner self and let myself be moved by an infinite number of feelings that I best express through the art of dance.
The show also features singers Matías López and Eva Ruiz; guitarists David Durán and Isaac Muñoz; and Diego Villegas on flute, saxophone, and harmonica.
