Capsule: Nuestro Leyenda

By Compania Carmen Romero

Nuestro Leyenda (Our Story) is a moving retrospect about a woman reliving a relationship. When she steps foot onto the floor, she recounts the feelings and images of what she thought she had only to realize that this relationship was never true. In the end she must pick herself up, let go and carry on. The music for Nuestro Leyenda is based on Isaac Albeniz iconic classical composition Asturias or Leyenda, which means "story".

Carmen Romero and Justin Brown have adapted the composition to include flamenco rhythm of Bulerias and this is a way in which Carmen Romero is able to manipulate the score and perform a structured improvisation.
