Susana di Palma’s Garden of Names, an original flamenco dance/theater work, inspired by Lawrence Thornton’s novel Imagining Argentina, is a triumphant acclamation of the imagination’s power to fight injustice. From stories of “disappeareds” (desaparecidos) during the 1970s, when people disappeared to be tortured and killed in a reign of government terror, names blossom forth amid the lush “garden” of remembering. This production features an exciting collaborative cast of internationally renowned flamenco dancers, singers, and musicians, along with Joe Chvala’s Flying Foot Forum.
