While Spain may be famous for its riveting flamenco performances, many international dance companies come to the warm European country in order to dance along with the best in the world.
Stop in Madrid this month on your Spanish adventure travel trip and watch the Madrid International Dance Festival, which runs through November 28, according to the New York Times. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the event and will see 33 companies to perform in 21 theaters around the city.
Dance companies will include Japanese butoh dancers, along with new groups from Korea and Poland. There will be plenty of flamenco to watch, as the Compania Rafela Carrasco will be putting on a show that should not be missed.
“We wish to create an international choreographic dialogue,” Ana Cabo, the festival director, told the news source. “I believe that the dialectic of movement is something so emotional and direct that everybody can understand, even the most current trends.”
The best way to experience Madrid and its rich culture is with a small group of adventure travelers.
