Queen of the Gypsies Film Portrait of Carmen Amaya
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: Marlboro College, Gander building, Marlboro, VT (about 29 miles from Keene)
Provides a comprehensive biography of renowned Flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya (1913-1963). Born into a Gypsy family, Amaya grew up dancing in the streets of Barcelona. By the time she was 23 years old, she had become a star of European and American cinema and stage with her passionate style of Flamenco dancing, eschewing the typical passive posture of female dancers and embracing the more masculine traits of ferocity and virtuosity. Combining speed and complexity of footwork with sensuality and expressiveness, Amaya remains unequaled in the world of Flamenco dance today. “With an academic thoroughness and a besotted fan’s fervor, documentarian Jocelyn Ajami adroitly captures the life and legacy of the late revolutionary dancer whose innovations redefined Flamenco.” – L.A. Weekly.
