Theater, dance and music come together in this original piece of contemporary flamenco by Natalia García-Huidobro and stage director Rodrigo Bazaes.

El arrebato is a flamenco piece that deals with how the concepts of migration, rage and alienation affect and manifest themselves in the body. Renowned flamenco dancer Natalia García Huidobro (Acuérdate de mí, Lola; Cambio de piel) directs this interdisciplinary production, putting flamenco dancers, singers and musicians on the stage and bringing a choral piece to life. It’s based on the territorial, generational and cultural memories of traditional flamenco folk songs that convey stories of first encounters and goodbyes, as well as of life’s impulses and desires. Under stage director Rodrigo Bazaes (Oleanna, Los 80); set, costume and lighting designer Cristián Reyes (Un tranvía llamado Deseo, Sin sangre) and sound designer Gonzalo Rodríguez (Kabinete Madame Forest, Somos), the La Típica company presents a dance piece that feeds off the body to capture the sentiments of concepts that are highly relevant to Chile today.

“The music’s in charge in this piece that lives and breathes flamenco, mixing choreography and theater while the sounds of the guitar and the percussion build up a whole realm of rhythm and verve”. —Biobío
