Petisa Loca (Compañía Sara Calero, Spain)

No dance festival is complete without a work by prima-ballerina and flamenco diva, Sara Calero.

This time around, she's sharing the Diaspora diaries of a woman and all women as thousands of Spaniards were forced to emigrate between Europe and America in the mid-twentieth century. An emotive work, Petisa Loca asks the question: "Is there a place for oneself?" as it works through issues of fear, hope, uncertainty, and displacement in a new, unfamiliar world – accompanied by world-class Spanish singer, Gema Caballero and guitarist Jose Almarche.
