Flamenco embodies sensuality
Experience the history and evolution of flamenco dancing at the Port Theatre Saturday, March 23. The mandate of Flamenco Rosario is to develop artists as well as dance and music works in the style and tradition of flamenco.
As an interpreter of flamenco dance, Artistic Director Rosario Ancer is interested in the continuing growth and evolution of the art form, rather than simply reiterating its past. Ancer demonstrates that the art of flamenco embodies sensuality in the most pure and passionate sense of that word. She is one of those rare dancers who has the power to convey the heart of their art form so convincingly that audience members feel as if they’re on a journey.
The Vancouver company explores the possibilities of flamenco by crossing boundaries of history and culture, incorporating dancers from other dance traditions, international dance artists, musicians and vocalists into the development of new work. Dancers will be accompanied by live musicians.
Flamenco Rosario takes pride in creating a platform for flamenco and young flamenco dancers to flourish in the city of Vancouver and plays to enthusiastic sold-out houses. The company is graced by local and guest artists of the highest calibre.
Tickets for Flamenco Rosario are $40, $15 for students. Get tickets online at www.porttheatre.com, phone 250-754-8550 or drop by the box office in Nanaimo.
