The Tablao d’Autore Review, conceived in 2004 by Arte y Flamenco, is dedicated to that particular form of show that includes solo performances or in very small groups of big names in Flamenco, in contexts other than the great theater. The idea was and remains today to present the three fundamental elements of Flamenco, the toque - that is the guitar, the cante - the song, and the baile - dance, in particular spaces, offering pure, authentic performances to aficionados, free of all those superstructures typical of large stages. The constantly growing event led in 2009 to the creation of a biennial International Festival / Competition, Flamenco Puro, in 2013 to the organization of a new 'young' version of the Review, called Tablao d'Autore - Nuevas Generaciones, and in 2016 the brand new #CompartirTablao Review. But the most anticipated show remains Tablao d’Autore, the original, organized with Folkclub, which from the very beginning believed in AYF's projects regarding Flamenco. With the desire to continue the collaboration, also this year AYF & Folkclub offer the public of fans a special, unique evening, as it brings together different artists on stage, virtuosos of baile, toque and cante who, each excelling in their own discipline , have the ability to create a balance of rare level on stage. In this 2022 edition we want to offer our public a "gem", as regards the baile, by presenting a pareja, a professional couple of the highest level: Alicia Marquez and Ramon Martinez, two Flamenco figures already consecrated individually, who in pairs tread the most prestigious world stages.
Alicia Marquez, sevillana bailaora, with an ancient flavor and artistic weight so loved by the public, an artist with an impeccable technique finely blended with a powerful expressiveness, which characterizes her, is considered the female spokesperson of the pure Art of the escuela sevillana by Matilde Coral; virtuoso of baile with the bata de cola (the traditional dress with a train) and with the mantón (the large embroidered shawl with long fringes) she danced as a figure in the most prestigious companies in Spain, starting with the Ballet de Andalucía directed by Mario Maya, to later create her own company, now co-directed with Ramon Martinez. The bailaór Malagueño, already enfant prodige, thanks to his peculiar gifts and his vast experience acquired over time, has the ability to combine classic elegance, expressive strength and a stylistic cut with a contemporary imprint. Together the two artists present us a traditional and pure flamenco, which nevertheless does not lack an extremely personal vein, characteristic of the great figures of today. On the Folkclub's tablas individual bailes and moments en pareja will alternate with the accompaniment of two great musicos: Mercedes Cortés, gypsy voice par excellence, cantaóra with a deep timbre that accompanies some of the most prestigious figures of the current flamenco scene, and Jordi Flores, guitarist powerful, among the most expert in the accompaniment of flamenco in tablao, two figures of whom among the fans are spoken with admiration and respect, for their technical skills, artistic generosity and impeccable flamencura.
Tablao d'Autore is - and wants to remain - a window on the most genuine form of representing Flamenco, and this format in a perfect fusion between history and contemporary notes, manages to tell his flamenco with truth, without filters, making us feel privileged to to be able to host it among us, and to be able to breathe it up close. It promises to be a great evening, not to be missed, as always at the FolkClub, where the quality of the proposals is so high and full of truth.
