Mis Hermanas tells the personal story and recalls the memories of Rosario Ancer growing up in Mexico, her dreams of becoming a dancer, her journey to Spain and her arrival in Vancouver, Canada. Through narratives, dance, sound effects, stills and video projections, the audience is taken on a journey from Mexico to Spain and from Spain to Canada. Flamenco Rosario is breaking new and exciting ground: recreating a profile of each sister through the magic of a child’s memory, through music and dance and exploring the journey to other countries, cultures and times.
Mis Hermanas, which is tied to contemporary Mexican, Spanish and Canadian Culture, received critical acclaim when it premiered in 2008. This production was awarded a 2009 Isadora Award for Excellence in Choreography and toured Mexico in 2010 including dates in the renowned Teatro de la Danza del Instituto National de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. Mis Hermanas was also selected as part of Made in BC’s 2012-2013 season of contemporary dance and toured to venues within this presenting network at Nanaimo, Whitehorse, Kelowna & Golden.
