Carmen / Shadow

Carmen / Shadow
TCalArts, 2016
Conceived by Cordelia Istel, Audrey Babcock, & Paola Escobar

Carmen / Shadow is a choreo-poem that combines operatic and flamenco depictions of the femme fatale. Combining elements of Bizet's Carmen with flamenco music and dance, the piece explores the performance of femininity and the consequences of embodying a "dangerous woman."
