SYNOPSIS

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. 

  

the WORKS

Salón Flamenco is four solo dance works, approximately twenty minutes each. The evening is split to allow for an interval and time for an artist’s post-show talk. The first half offers introspective and thought-provoking works by Lisa Maris McDonell and Annalouise Paul, that challenge the form and ideas about embodiment of culture. The second act works are visually theatrical, comedic and highly virtuosic exploring flamenco iconography and appropriation of culture by Maree Laffan and Tomas Arroquero
