Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana 

When: Sat., Feb. 25, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $10 - $30

You may have never known the term, but rest assured: you've known duende. Federico Garcia Lorca, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, and countless others have made the dark, dignified acknowledgement that there is no true love without true loss—that great passion walks hand in hand with the greatest risk. Flamenco culture has always been frank about such matters. As dancers slice the silence of the dance hall into sixty-fourth notes with percussive steps, no translation is needed for the cante jondo, or deep songs of the cantaores, which convey their ancient warnings of the triumphs and perils of the heart. Saturday night, artistic director Carlota Santana returns flamenco to the tablaos—the clubs and cabarets from which it came—in her company's table-side performance at Motorco. —Byron Woods
