Cómplices is Pasión y Arte’s first outside commissioned work. It is choreographed by world-renowned flamenco artist, Rosario Toledo, with original composition by Spanish flamenco composer/guitarist Dani de Morón, winner of Spain’s prestigious Giraldillo Toque Award, and Cuban jazz composer Francois Zayas. The all-female ensemble of Pasión y Arte will explore the images, sounds, and feelings of the feminine and masculine worlds, and the many conflicting definitions of the 21st-century woman.

Performances will take place at 1 and 4 p.m.
