Presented by the South Peace Community Arts Council, Flamenco Rosario is excited to perform Cuadro Flamenco at the Kiwanis Performing Arts Centre in Dawson Creek on October 15, 2016, 7:30 pm – 9 pm.
Flamenco Rosario is Western Canada’s leading Flamenco Dance Troupe residing in Vancouver, BC. Artistic Director, Rosario Ancer was recently honoured with the prestigious Lola Award which is presented to a senior-level choreographer every two years. They welcome you to join them as they whisk you off to Spain to experience their ‘Cuadro Flamenco Series’ a spirited event celebrating the traditional, intimate setting of flamenco performance. Originated in the mid-1800’ era of “Café Cantantes”, and continuing today in Spain’s “Tablao Flamenco”.
The form showcases the personal style of dancers, musicians and singers, all sharing the stage. In keeping with the “tablao” tradition, the evening’s program follows the spontaneity and improvisational nature of flamenco. The dancers perform for the “Cuadro” behind them as well as the audience in front. A healthy dose of competition is an important part of the show, as is the rapport among the performers and with the audience. Don’t be afraid to shout out “Olé” when the mood strikes you!
