An intimate salón for lovers of flamenco. Experimental contemporary-flamenco performance.
Adventurous, daring, solo works connecting with the pulse of what’s piping-hot in Europe right now. The artists share a philosophy of practice in this first of-its-kind platform for Australia.
Moving away from tradition they play with sound, movement, gender and concepts that concern them as Australians practising far from the mothership of Spain. Flamenco informs each artist’s individuality within (or without) a community forging new terrain in this largely traditional field for wider contemporary relevance.
Stay for an artist’s talk and vintage film “El Flamenco” exclusive to this inaugural event kindly donated by Centro Andaluz de Documentación del Flamenco.
