Fiery flamenco returns to the CCP in June
Spanish flamenco dancer and choreographer Eduardo Guerrero returns to Manila to perform De Dolores, a stunning flamenco concert which mesmerized Manila audiences last year, on June 14-15, 8 p.m., at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater).
Guerrero took his first dance steps at the early age of six. He studied Spanish dance at the Conservatorio de Danza de Cádiz and later completed his contemporary and classical training with David Greenall and Monserrat Marin.
He has worked with the biggest names in flamenco such as Eva Yerbabuena, Amador Rojas and Antonio Canales. He has garnered several awards such as La Perla de Cádiz and the first prize in the II Choreographic Contest of Andalucia Professional Dance Conservatories.
Flamenco is rooted deeply in the cultures of Spain, though it is mostly centered in Andalusia, yet included in almost every social event in both European and Spanish countries. The CCP has presented flamenco dance and music productions, among them, Spain’s famed Flamenco dancer Sara Baras.
