Festival of Jerez offers an immense variety of the richest and most significant
art form that the city has to offer: Flamenco. The festival focuses its attention
on dance (flamenco dance and Spanish dance) setting it apart from other events
of its kind throughout the world.
Festival makes a decided effort to incorporate the creative evolution of flamenco,
through the development of its expressive forms and the modernization -from a
traditional base- of its languages. The Festival encourages the meeting of different
art forms, supporting the creative activity of those determined to find new aesthetic
expressions for the flamenco of the twenty-first century.
Festival doesn't only provide performances, but also formative programs, providing
a place for creativity and the meeting of different art forms.
the Festival of Jerez calls attention to the city of Jerez as a "scenic backdrop"
for the festival, with performances throughout the city in theatres such as the
Villamarta, along with a variety of public spaces and unique buildings.
