Fin de Fiesta Flamenco returns to Mayne: Thu Aug 11



Mayne Island Agricultural Hall - 430 Fernhill Road.

Direct from Seville, Spain: Fin De Fiesta Flamenco dance and music ensemble presents "Audacia," a bold new production that explores the many sides of one of the world's most passionate and intense art forms: flamenco.

Boasting a company of acclaimed international flamenco musicians and starring esteemed Canadian flamenco dancer and choreographer Lia Grainger, Audacia takes audiences on a thrilling journey, from flamenco's traditional roots in the music and culture of southern Spain, all the way to its contemporary forms. Ancient rhythms meet avant-garde ideas and converge in an explosion of staccato guitar, haunting flute and percussive footwork.

To the south of Spain and back again, Audacia will leave you breathless, with the pulsing rhythms of flamenco beating in your heart.

Fin De Fiesta Flamenco is Lia Grainger (artistic director, dance), Dennis Duffin (musical director, guitar), Lara Wong (flute), Alejandro Ugarte Mendia (voice), and Davide Sampaulo (percussion).

Performance on Thursday, 11 August 2016 from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Ticket prices: $25 / $22 (seniors/students) / $15 (children under 14). Tickets available online.
