Adorno is a show that presents an innovative approach to the relationship between flamenco dancer and accessory. In the work, the five principal accessories - the castanets, bata de cola, shawl, fan, and cane - gain new autonomous meanings and roles while the dancers renegotiate how they are typically used. As the roles shift, the dancer-accessory relationship becomes destabilized and, ultimately, redefined.
