Aga Khan Museum International Flamenco Festival
October 20, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Alejandro Céspedes performs with Compañia Carmen Romero “Y Entonces-Redux”
Enjoy a lively three-day weekend of contemporary and classical flamenco when the Aga Khan Museum auditorium becomes the venue for our third annual international Flamenco Festival. Through performances and film, experience the soulful expression and contagious energy of emerging and established, local and international flamenco artists.
Making his Canadian debut, Spanish master Adrián Santana showcases flamenco’s passionate and symbiotic relationship between cante (song) and dance. At the heart of Symbiosis is the pure pleasure of sharing different yet intertwined impulses. The call and response of musicians joins the give and take between dancers to produce a powerfully expressive performance. Fueled by harmony and the desire to create, flamenco dancers sketch distinct emotions to the music of drums and guitar.
This double bill includes Toronto-based Compañia Carmen Romero, who delight audiences with their high-energy performances.
