A contemporary flamenco performance evoking a man, his daughter, and the scars they both carry. A woman grieves the loss of her father, and through letters, photographs and talismans, tries to uncover the mysteries of who he was. In search of understanding and catharsis, JACINTO examines the dark angels within us: the black crow inside one’s heart, the fear and pain that is passed on, generation to generation. It can lie dormant within us, but it also wants to free us; it dances out the fear.

Earthy - from- the gut Flamenco.

With power and feeling, Carmen Romero holds us spellbound, then awakens us - reverberating from within or exploding like a bomb.
