About the workshop:
Flamenco Bastón (bastones will be provided).
This dance workshop with Juan Carlos Otero brings you a Flamenco classic: Martinete with Bastón. We will be looking at its rhythmic and melodic structure, and the particular 'heaviness' which define it as a work song. Dancing with bastón offers opportunities to focus on the strict rules of compás and posture, how to create drama out of relative stillness, as well as expressing personal pride and resilience. This session is for all levels and there will be footwork exercises for beginners, as well as variations for more experienced students.
If you are a Battersea Spanish member, don’t forget to apply your member discount when booking.
Frequently Asked Questions
Juan Carlos OteroI graduated in 1994 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, producing painting, conceptual video, sound and performance. I continued developing conceptual work in design, and worked extensively in education but my main artistic output for the past two decades has been as a flamenco dancer and choreographer. Since 2013 I have also been devising multi disciplined experimental theatre. My practice has evolved around the dichotomies of my dual nationality/ cultural identity and the split between my background in traditional culture and my education in contemporary art. For years now I have been trying to create projects that unify my various creative strands. FLAMENCO LIFE DRAWING with BATTERSEA SPANISH is the latest venture, fusing my two main areas of expertise, Fine Art and Flamenco.
