Compañía Manuel Liñán “Viva!”
Compañía Manuel Liñán “Viva!” is Fri, Apr 22 at 8pm. From $35. nycitycenter.org 🇪🇸
Manuel Liñán of Granada has a reputation for stretching traditional Flamenco forms. He can stretch it because his traditions are so strong.
“Viva!” is Flamenco in Drag with Manuel Liñán and six men performing as women. In Spain, Flamenco is a very traditional community, so for Spain this is wild. But the men can really dance. It’s great to feel the joy of being whoever you want to be.
Gala Flamenca with Mercedes Ruiz, Eduardo Guerrero, María Moreno and special guest María Terremoto, is Sat, Apr 23 at 8pm and Sun, Apr 24 at 3pm. From $35. nycitycenter.org 🇪🇸

In the past, present, and future of Flamenco, there is something for everyone at New York City Center. ¡Olé!
