Colour and culture to hit Prossie
FOR one night only colour, culture and style is coming to Proserpine.
That's right, Flamenco Fire is touring regional Queensland.
Australia's only national flamenco company and one of Queensland's most successful cultural exports, Flamenco Fire, comes to the Whitsundays for just one night on April 23.
The show features special guests Olayo Jimenez (singer), Francesca Grima (dancer) and Andrej Vujicic (percussion) direct from Villa Sevilla, Spain.
It showcases the golden age of flamenco, taking audiences back to 19th century southern Spain when flamenco was transitioning from a private and spontaneous style of folk dance to a more public art form seen in cafes, tablaos and eventually theatres.
Director of the show and acclaimed guitarist Andrew Veivers said the production was the third instalment in a series of Flamenco Fire shows, including Al-Andaluz and Gypsy Pathways, and he was confident patrons would enjoy the energy, passion and storytelling brought to the stage.
"Audiences will be transported to a time when Spain was balancing political and religious powers as well as unprecedented economic and population growth and cultural intolerance, providing intimate insight into this important time of change," he said.
