Join for live on-site performance. ABREPASO flamenco will present both traditional and avant garde flamenco works that show how flamenco began as a hybrid form drawing from many cultures within and beyond Andalucía, and continues to incorporate new influences. Because of flamenco's diverse molds, it has historically given voice to the oppressed and attracted aficionados from all over the world and all walks of life, building bridges and understanding across differences.
