Eva Yerbabuena has been enthralling audiences with her explosive footwork, graceful movement, and innovative choreography for more than 15 years, but more than anything she is appreciated for her duende, the soulfulness and emotional depth that is the hallmark of great flamenco dancers. Yerbabuena has won every major Spanish choreographic award, revitalizing traditional flamenco with new dramatic structures while maintaining the essence of the centuries-old form—the rhythmic intensity, the distinctive lines of the dance, the dancer's intimate relationship with the music. "At the heart of her performance is a fierce, dark rigour that accumulates a thrilling power" (The Independent, London).
