Espacio Flamenco brings its new show Diálogos to the historic Mission Theatre this October and you are invited to join the conversation! With special guest artists Alfonso Cid and Jed Miley, Diálogos is a celebration of the flamenco language that links the singing, guitar, dance, and percussion. Each discipline has a great strength in it's own right but when they come together they create a rich dialogue that is unparalleled in the world of dance and performance art.

A pre-show interactive lecture/demonstration will be given by professional flamenco singer Alfonso Cid, those who are not too shy are invited to do some hand clapping and learn some basic steps! Alfonso will take the audience on a journey to the world of flamenco with a short lecture about the history of flamenco and its development. He will explore the differences between various styles in the genre, discuss the techniques behind the vocals, guitar playing and dance as well as about some of its most influential artists. No previous flamenco experience or knowledge of the Spanish language is needed.

ALFONSO CID-Flamenco Vocals and Flute.
Alfonso Cid was born and raised in Sevilla, the heartland of flamenco music. His mother, an amateur singer from Triana, a flamenco enclave in Seville, and his grandfather, an aficionado of flamenco, were his earliest influences. He also had the opportunity of attending the activities of one the most significant flamenco clubs in Andalusia, the Peña Flamenca Torres-Macarena in Seville. Alfonso enrolled at the Seville Conservatory in 1990 to study flute and music theory. He was awarded two scholarships to attend the intensive summer course at the Cristina Heeren Foundation for Flamenco Art on July 2007 and 2008 in Sevilla. He had the honor of recording backing vocals in the song titled "Mi Santa" on the album Formula Vol. 1 by popular Latin artist Romeo Santos in which the great flamenco guitarist Tomatito was a featured guest artist. Alfonso has toured extensively throughout the USA, Latin America, Israel and Europe, and has just toured Spain last July and August of 2017 with his newest Jazz/Flamenco band, the New York Bojaira Project by pianist Jesús Hernández from Granada, Spain. He released his first CD titled "Flamenco de vuelta e ida" on 2006 with his own Flamenco fusion project Gazpacho Andalú and flamenco guitarist Arturo Martínez. He has also released an album with the Spanish Indie Rock project Dientes de Caramelo titled Pulpo (Octopus) in March of 2012 as well as three new singles throughout the summer of 2015.

JED MILEY - Flamenco Guitarist
Jed Miley is a Flamenco guitarist, composer, producer and teacher based in Seattle. He began playing Flamenco guitar in 1996, after hearing a recording of Sabicas. In Seattle, Jed was lucky to find Marcos Carmona as his first Flamenco guitar teacher and later worked in La Pena Flamenca de Seattle with Rubina Carmona. In 2003, he moved to New York where he worked professionally for several years, playing at prestigious venues including Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Joes Pub, Caramoor Festival, Jacobs Pillow and various tablaos. In 2009, Jed joined Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and performed, toured and acted as a teaching artist with the company for three years. He has studied extensively in Seville, Spain at La Fundacion Cristina Heeren with Nino de Pura, Jose Antonio Rodriguez, and Pedro Sierra. In addition to playing traditional Flamenco, Jed is known for stretching harmonic and melodic structures with his Flamenco fusion projects and collaborates with artists such as Alfonso Cid, Elena Andujar, Miguel Vargas, and Sara Erde.

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....
