“Prophecies”

ECKVbata

“Prophecies” is the newest creation by the artists of A’lante. Inspired by the prose poetry of Khalil Gibran, whose book “The Prophet” has captured readers’ imaginations since 1923, A’lante’s work imagines a mythical dialogue with Gibran’s fictional prophet, using centuries-old flamenco music and dance as a common idiom. “Prophecies” invites audiences to consider the role of tradition in our 21stcentury digital society, while digging into the very roots of the flamenco art form to unearth a new creation. “Prophecies” earned A’lante Flamenco the Austin Critics’ Table Award for Best Dance Ensemble in 2014.
