ALBERTO PIZANO
AWARD FOR THE ARTS

Presented to Luisa Triana

Dancer, Choreographer, Visual Artist

As part of the Red Carpet Gala and the premiere of FARO, we will open the show with a special awards presentation honoring flamenco icon Luisa Triana in recognition of a lifetime dedicated to the arts as a dancer, choreographer, and visual artist.

Luisa Triana’s career in flamenco spans an impressive seven decades and includes performances in prestigious theaters in Spain and around the world, including our very own Lobero Theatre in 1962 where she returns on September 28th as the recipient of the Alberto Pizano Award for the Arts.

Ms. Triana, born in Seville, Spain, began performing internationally with her famous father, flamenco dancer Antonio Triana, debuting at the young age of six years old in Buenos Aires alongside La Argentinita and Sabicas.  In the U.S. she performed in Hollywood films with great actors such as Gene Tierney, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charise, and John Wayne before establishing her own acclaimed Spanish dance company.   In addition to her celebrated dancing career, Ms. Triana is a master painter having studied with Will Foster, Nicolai Fechin, and Carlos Ruano Llopis.

The Flamenco Arts Festival is proud to welcome Ms. Triana back to Santa Barbara to receive this award for her many contributions to the arts.

 Luisa Triana joins previous recipients Cristina Hoyos (2003), Roberto Amaral (2004), Juan Talavera (2009), and David Asbell (2017).

RED CARPET GALA

EDUARDO GUERRERO

U.S. Premiere of FARO
also featuring Manuel Soto, Anabel Rivera, and Javier Ibañez

Make a grand entrance on the red carpet along with other aficionados.  We plan to celebrate this 20-year milestone in style!  Arrive early to enjoy the no-host bar while the anticipation and excitement build for the thrilling premiere of FARO.

Like a shining beacon, Eduardo Guerrero will immediately draw you into FARO (‘Lighthouse’). Inspired by a journey across Spain to discover the magic and majesty of the country’s lighthouses, this tour-through-dance starts in the north, with travels to the Faro de Peñas in Asturias, with a final stop in Cádiz, where the lighthouse plays a significant role in Guerrero’s first childhood memories.

FARO is an exhilarating, exciting, unscripted performance that fills the air with electricity thanks to Guerrero’s mesmerizing moves infused with passionate music and the vibrant colors of his changing costumes. It’s at once intense, playful, and bold — razor-sharp with calculated precision that excites with a sense of spontaneity.

Tickets:  $100 / $65 / $35 / Plus Applicable Fees / Ticket Prices Include Award Presentation / All Seats Reserved / Doors Open at 7:00 PM
