And if it is in fact Adrian Galia dancing with Stella Arauzo, then perhaps there is a new parallel line -- different from Gades
dancing with his student-- for in this case the director Arazou chose her Don JosE[umlaut].
More captivating are the moments in rehearsals when Hoyos and Gades
urge del Sol to move with more purpose and urgency, or when Antonio dances the farruca, the ferocity of his presence pulsating in every lunge and turn of this rich, masculine dance.
With them, Gades
was inspired to make his most famous piece, Carmen, rethought as a flamenco-driven play-within-a-play, with flamenco music and dancing.
La Argentina, La Argentinita, Vicente Escudero, Pilar Lopez, Carmen Amaya, Teresa and Luisillo, Rosario and Antonio, Jose Greco, Roberto Ximenez, Manolo Vargas, and Antonio Gades
became household names in world dance.
Of those carded by the hypnotic bravura of Antonio Gades
and Cristina Hoyos, Carmen became an arthouse sensation and, for many, it still defines flamenco.
C&M then has a new entry for the Danish dancer Rose Gad, who came to prominence after Koegler was published, and then both dictionaries join up for the Swedish choreographer Ulf Gadd and the Spanish dancer Antonio Gades
, with, once again, C&M being rather the more chatty and informative.
