A note from the Artistic Director:
CAMELO means I WANT in the gypsy dialect spoken throughout Spain and especially amongst the flamencos.
This is a show that explores the verb I WANT. “To want”, whether in Spanish or English, can be both an then active and a passive verb. Its most common synonym is “to desire”. However, its meaning can encompass more, depending on the context. For example, to want could mean you have a affinity with something, or it could mean you lack something and therefore have a need. To want, especially as used in Spanish, can also be used to express your love for someone – “Te camelo o lo he camelado.”
There are many ways and reasons to Want something, so we are simply expressing these different ways and moments of Wanting through dance and music. (This is a flamenco performance, despite the fact that non-traditional flamenco instruments are incorporated in the show.) Our goal is to express our personal I Want through movement and sound.
