My own view of Flamenco is that it is an artistic expression of the intense awareness of the existential human condition. It is an
effort to come to terms with the concept that we are all 'strangers who are afraid, in a world we never made;' that there is probably
no higher being and that even if he/she (or it) is irrelevant to the human condition in the final analysis. The truth in Flamenco is that
life must be lived and death must be faced on an individual basis; that is the fundamental responsibility of each man to come to
terms with their own alienation with courage, dignity and humour, and to support others in their efforts. It is an excruciatingly
honest art form.
