Flamenco Fire Viva Sevilla
29 Apr 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$2
Flamenco Fire’s Viva Sevilla – The Golden Age of Flamenco! is a beautifully crafted show that reveals the flamenco art form in all of its guises. From contemporary festive dances to heart wrenching traditional songs, to fiery guitar ensemble pieces, Flamenco Fire will transport you to España……¡Olé!
Directed by renowned composer / guitarist Andrew Veivers and featuring Australia’s finest flamenco artists alongside – direct from Spain – dancer Francesca ‘La Chica’, singer Olayo
Jimenez and percussionist Andrej Vujicic, Viva Sevilla thrills audiences with a heady mix of traditional and contemporary flamenco music, dance and song.
Since 1999, Flamenco Fire has been recognized as Queensland’s most successful cultural arts export, and Australia’s only national flamenco company. Using original content, the performances are a fully choreographed and orchestrated presentation of this unique contribution to contemporary Australian dance and music.
Viva Sevilla is the third instalment of Flamenco Fire’s historically based flamenco trilogy exploring the cultural, geopolitical, and religious influences that, combined over a period of almost two thousand years, produce the various elements of the flamenco art form. Through collaboration with national and international artists, Viva Sevilla investigates the many conflicting issues, priorities and notions of cultural diversity and what can be learnt from the historic precedence of 19th century Spain.
The event will run from 6.30pm – 8.30pm with a 20 minute interval. The entry fee for this performance is a gold coin donation. A cash bar will be available on the night.
