After selling out four performances during our Flamenco Festival in 2015, the incomparable Sara Baras—direct from Spain—returns to the Arsht Center as the star of the Center’s 12th annual Flamenco Festival Miami. Celebrated for her brilliant footwork and captivating stage presence, Sara Baras has become internationally famous in a career that has spanned more than 20 years and earned her dozens of prestigious dance awards, including Spain’s highest dance honor (National Dance Award), France’s Medaille de Vermeil de la Villa de Paris, Kennedy Center’s Gold Medal in the Arts and the National Dance Gold Medal of Andalucía, the birthplace of flamenco. Her career is represented by the education that she received from her mother, Concha Baras, the teacher who has had the most influence on her professional path. Baras captures the emotion, drama, and passion of traditional flamenco with a vibrant contemporary edge. Described by The Guardian as a “woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane,” Baras has created and choreographed 11 original evening works and delivered more than 4,000 magnificent performances with her company all over the world.
