With bold rhythm and improvisation, Palabra Flamenco presents fierce dance, live guitar, troubled song, and English-language poetry – a grief and praise that soak their way to dark corners. How to confront what’s buried? Hold death near, affirming life? This myth-inflected encounter honours what we’ve lost, what we’re going to lose. “Sexy, uncomfortable… incredible” (Audience member, PeekFest) denisejy.wixsite.com/palabraflamenco
