Antonio Gades’ flamenco ballets

The age-old Spanish art of flamenco is brought to life on the Paris stage this winter by the Antonio Gades company. He was the man entrusted with founding Spain’s National Ballet in the post-Franco era.

his widow Eugenia Eiriz joins us on Culture to explain how his legacy lives on through his dance company and foundation, and how dance can have a deceptively complex message. We also talk unfilmable films as Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” hits cinema screens worldwide.
