Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía brings ‘Metáfora’ to Boston

Metaphor. Métaphore. Metafoor: In so many languages, it’s a euphonious, fey word; it’s the stuff of dreams and poetry; it’s the lens through which many artists gaze while creating. In Spanish the word is “Metáfora,” and it’s the title of flamenco dancer and choreographer Rubén Olmo’s two-part, evening-length work that pays homage to a dance tradition steeped in the imagery of blood, sweat, and fire.

Presented by World Music/CRASHarts, “Metáfora” will have its US premiere Friday and run through Sunday at the Cutler Majestic Theatre, performed by Ballet Flamenco de Andalucía, which is making its Boston debut with the piece.
