ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
Compañia Chuscales has performed regularly at Teatro Paraguas since 2013, including Memories of Doña Tules (2022), The Four Seasons (2022), Orange and Lemon (2021), Tree of Life (2020), Gypsy Moon & Stars (2019), Monet’s Moon (2018), Carmen La Golondrina (2018), Dance with Spirit (2017), Choreography and Calligraphy (2017), and Una Nota de Lorca (2016).

Both Chuscales and Mina Fajardo have studied with many flamenco masters in Spain and the United Sates and have helped to pass the tradition on to scores of students. Their virtuosity and electric presence, coupled with their mastery of the traditional forms and willingness to experiment within the ageless genre of flamenco, have held audiences spell-bound for years.
