New Works and Mozaico Flamenco Dance Theatre are proud to present the second instalment of audience favourite Viñetas del Mozaico. A colourful flamenco dance spectacular directed by Kasandra “La China”, which showcases a dozen performers in twelve dance vignettes, world percussionists and new belly dance/flamenco fusion with one of Vancouver’s foremost belly dancers, Ashley Kirkham. The show celebrates virtuosity and expression, through the use of Spanish castanets and zills, Chinese fans & silk veils, Sevillan shawls and rapid-fire footwork!
The show brings to the forefront, flamenco percussion by Davide Sampaolo from Rome who showcases his virtuosity with “cajón”, the flamenco drum box. We compare, contrast and compliment flamenco cajón with Vancouver’s Tim Gerwing on darbouka, the traditional accompaniment for belly dance, oriental and tribal dance.
Viñetas del Mozaico imagines a varied cultural mixture. It is a collection of a dozen unique dance vignettes that expands the Spanish context to include influences from some surprisingly diverse sources. Each piece showcases a new inspiration, a new exploration, and a new interpretation of flamenco artistry. This unique performance promises to transport audiences to a magical, imaginative place where anything can happen!
