About "Bernarda, No!":

Ana Rosa Meneses is the artistic director and choreographer of Compañía Flamenca Ecos, from Havana Cuba.

Her full-length work "Bernarda, No!" premiered in January 2022 at the Jose Marti Theater in Havana, after a creative process of 2+ years and several delays due to pandemic closures. The work is based on "La Casa de Bernarda Alba" by Spanish playwright and poet Federico García Lorca. The dancers were heavily involved in the development of the characters and movement, working with acting coaches to learn pantomime and gesture expression which is combined with contemporary dance movement and traditional flamenco percussive footwork.

About Flamenco Company Ecos:

Flamenco Company Ecos was founded in 1999 in La Havana Cuba, by a group of dancers and musicians; with musical roots to the Andalucia region of Spain, who had big artistic desire to rescue the art of Flamenco in Cuba and promote as well as educate national and international audience in the Art of Flamenco.

The main focus of Ecos is in traditional flamenco and its scenic expressions with additional representation in Tablao performance, as well as theater shows where combined elements of traditional music and choreography modified into more contemporary setting.

The musical elements, choreography and movements, that are naturally evident in traditional Flamenco Dance, have taken a different shape in the recent creative searches of Ecos artists. Ecos expresses itself in a perfect mix of a Flamenco Tradition and music and dance of the Cuban origin.

Works such as Flamenqueando, Son flamenco, Inquietudes, Cuba Flamenca, Más que flamenco and ¡BERNARDA, NO! form a part of its artistic catalog. The group technical level-expertise and training secured through direct interactions with internationally recognized organizations such as Spanish Ballet of Cuba, National Ballet of Cuba and Regional Government of Andalusia as well as direct involvement by famous flamenco dancers and choreographers like: Cristina Hoyos, Eva la Yerbabuena, Manolo Marín, Israel Galván, Javier Barón, Gerardo Núñez, Segundo Falcón, Antonio Coronel and Juan José Amador.

The Flamenco Company Ecos is constantly requested on the main theater stages of the country and has been involved in countless festivals, galas and national and international events. In addition, Ecos performing an outstanding educational work in various artistic events in Cuba.
