Suffolk University welcomes back the Casa Patas Flamenco Foundation, Madrid’s premiere presenters of flamenco and flamenco fusion, for an exhilarating night of dance and music.
Creative temperament is an invisible force found deep in the artist’s blood that makes the heart beat. It is a slow-burning fire in the movement of a bullfighter’s cape, in the steady hands of a guitarist and in the tranquility of a dancer’s soul. Temperance is the power of creative temperament, which promotes an order from within, calms the spirit, and erupts in the emotions that define our lives and, like a glove fitted to a hand, it defines each palo or Flamenco musical form. Temperance is the road of my life. It is a life inexorably tied to and fused with Flamenco, in which the most sober of expressions along with the exaltation of happiness find their place. In Temperance I bare the core of who I am and let myself be
moved by an infi nite number of feelings, which I best express through the art of dance.
