In her introspective and compelling ¡Ay!, flamenco superstar Eva Yerbabuena showcases her extraordinary technique and bold, minimalist choreography, performing a series of solos accompanied by a virtuoso ensemble of musicians. Yerbabuena's innovative approach has revitalized traditional flamenco with new dramatic structures while maintaining the essential duende, or soulfulness, of the centuries-old form. At her last Berkeley appearance, she "rocked the joint with...a solea that released the demonic energy and superb musicality of flamenco at its most inspired" (San Francisco Chronicle).
