Let us all look for duende in everything we do. Invite others to do the same and let us share the experiences.


Glad to see another academic insitution to levereage the power of blogs


I think Duende is a goog exemple of "order at the edge of chaos", a kind of perfect moment, among a lot a movement. Maybe the elf or the goblin is nothing more but the uncouncious willing of the dancers to reach the Duende...


the duende is what expresses a performer by singing and dancing the flamenco accompagned by a guitare and the "pito".
And the cheerfulness is what expresses a flamenco performer, but when he is accompagned by the "zapateado" or the "taconeo".
but even if we could easyly beleive that the duende is an art, it's important to say that it's also an art of living, and of thinking by itself! Indeed I think that the gypsies of Andalucia never pretend to be sad, neither to be in deep communion with their earth, their boby, and their's as if naturally they were near the chaos.
