This year’s Regeneration show presents three solos choreographed by graduates of the Professional Training Program, Yurie Kaneko, Katia Flores and Deborah Dawson:

Yurie and Katia have developed their solos through one-on-one mentorships with Artistic Director Rosario Ancer. They use flamenco as a tool to explore their Japanese and Peruvian ancestry, connecting the dots between their culture, traditions and experiences in Canada, presenting “who I am” today as an individual and dancer. Deborah Dawson returns to Vancouver to share a sincere ode to the essence of flamenco. It is a minimalist and heartfelt production led by dancer Deborah “La Caramelita” and singer Alejandro Mendía.
