South Africa's most established Spanish dance company, La Rosa, will be extending their 20th anniversary celebrations with a season at On Broadway.
Swirling skirts, castanets and a passionate display of Flamenco dancing, rhythms and sounds are what audiences have come to expect from La Rosa and Celebracion Flamenca is no exception.
Carolyn Holden has restaged established repertoire in a new creative context, resulting in a visual feast of Contemporary Flamenco. The production features choreography by Holden and by the Madrid-based choreographers Joaquin Ruiz, La Truco, Domingo Ortega and the late Javier Cruz.
Celebracion Flamenca features the cream of La Rosa's dancers accompanied by a musical ensemble including the highly acclaimed Flamenca guitarist, Bienyameen, on flute, Robert Davids and Nkosinathi Figlan on cajon, accompanied by South Africa's own cantaora, Lorean Swartz.
This production has been made possible with the support of the National Lotteries Distribution Trust Fund, the National Arts Council, Breadline Africa, the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sports.
The production is on Tuesdays to Saturdays from 18-29 January 2011.
