Originating within the realm of flamenco in southern Spain, the tradition of Duende — a spiritual and physical response to art — tells the story of art’s transformational power. This fall, New Yorkers are invited to experience a series of performances, workshops, and discussions exploring Duende through poetry, music and dance.
Directed by Andalusian poet, musician, and scholar Dr. Ernesto Estrella, sponsored by Trinity Church Wall Street’s Congregational Arts Committee, and inspired by the genius of Federico García Lorca, this series is free and open to all. Enjoy the music, learn to dance flamenco, and discover how Duende resonates across cultures and continents.
September 24–October 1 at St. Paul’s Chapel (Broadway and Fulton St, NYC)
