FORM Dance Projects and Riverside Theatres will present the world premiere of two contemporary flamenco dance works, Forge and Bush Bailando, from 5 to 7 May and one WeekendNotes subscriber has the chance to win a Double Pass.
This exciting double bill will see Australian flamenco dance artists, Annalouise Paul and internationally acclaimed Pepa Molina, perform solo works accompanied on stage by renowned musicians. Reinterpreting traditional flamenco, Forge and Bush Bailando will delight audiences with a completely fresh take on this art form.
Forge is a striking dance-music collaboration between award-winning choreographer and dancer Annalouise Paul and composer-pianist Amanda Handel. Forge draws upon contemporary dance and the percussive power of the piano to reinterpret the soulful flamenco form Seguiriyas and its origins in Sephardi song.
Bush Bailando reflects the sounds and rhythms found in the Australian landscape, and in particular the bush surrounding the western Sydney home of dancer Pepa Molina. Pepa explores the displacement of her Andalusian heritage and draws inspiration from the natural elements of water, wind, earth and fire.
Pepa has performed with the most prestigious Flamenco dance companies in the world such as Los Arrieritos, Manolete, Juan Andrés Maya's dance companies, and as a soloist for Paco Peña and Los Losadas. Pepa will be accompanied on stage by flamenco composer and guitarist Marco Van Doornum and multi-instrumentalist Stuart Vandegraaff. The performance will also feature an original score from Marco and Spanish electroacoustic composer and soundscape designer, Héctor González Sánchez.
To celebrate the upcoming season of Forge and Bush Bailando at Riverside Theatres, WeekendNotes subscribers have the chance to win a Double Pass to the performance on Friday 6th May at 8pm.
