Flamenco Quote of the Day

Flamenco dancing is concentrated downward, toward the ground. The most intense energy right on the spot, tied to the earth, stamped into it...Psychic energy is transformed into physical, Tellurian energy. Catharsis is achieved in flamenco when body and earth are joined...The dance roots itself in the earth, as though drawn there by some powerful magnet...The important play of arms in flamenco dancing, especially by the females, is a desperate attempt to lift themselves in the air as though on wings.

Claus Schreiner/Author
