Poeta en Nueva York is inspired by Federico García Lorca’s poems and experience in New York from 1929 to 1930. He is confronted to a very different environment from his native Andalucia. It will be a decisive turn in his writing style. A group of twenty dancers, the solist dancers Andrés Marín and Blanca Li, singing by Carmen Linares or Encarnita Anillo, and by Rob-Li, and an original music by Tao Gutiérrez give life to the interior world of Lorca, his images and words, between jazz and flamenco... Around 60 000 people discovered the show during a series of representations at the International Festival of Granada.
