Synopsis en Español

Acclaimed flamenco choreographer and dancer Fuensanta “La Moneta” is working on a new show when one of her students gives her a copy of Félix Grande’s poetry collection “La cabellera de la Shoá.” Written by Grande after his visit to Auschwitz, Fuensanta can’t stop thinking about those women —Jewish and Gypsy alike— who lost their lives in the concentration camp. The poems inspire her to create a piece that remembers these women through music, dance and poetry.
