Familia Flamenco

Familia Flamenco

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ve probably realised that I am a bit of a nut when it comes to productions, shows, concerts and so on. And what is so great about living in South Africa is that there is such a variety of talent and opportunities for us to expand our cultural experience.

This time it is Dubans turn for a bit of heat when Familia Flamenco with Linda Vargas who is returning after more than five years of not being on stage. Dance lovers should look forward to this programme that will be presented with flair by the acclaimed Flamenco Dance Company Vargas …

Familia Flamenco is only running for a limited season (Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 September) and again from 30 September to 3 October with both runs taking place at the Catalina Theatre on Wilson’s Warf.

Flamenco dancing originates from Spain and Flamenco groups are often made up of members of the same family, which this South African group is proudly able to do. The show also celebrates the theme of family (quite fitting seeing as the show takes place over the Heritage Day weekend)…

Some of the group includes Linda’s husband, acclaimed musician Demi Fernandez, her sister, Juana and her son Ramon. Other members of the group include brothers Enrique and Fernando Marin, Rocio Maya, Daniela Morena, Lorena Vaga, Alicia del Rey, Clara Torres, Ana Salvatore and Sara Giampietri. They may not all be blood relatives but they have become an extended and close-knit family.

Familia Flamenco

Characterised by the stylised movements, gorgeous costumes and a consistent beat that is either made by the tapping of feet and clapping of hands you can expect to see some familiar Flamenco mixed in with some contemporary pieces that will capture the spirit of family with the essence of Flamenco. Whether you are already a fan of this passionate art form or if you are wanting to learn more you should get your tickets today.

Performances on 23, 28, 30 September and 2 October begin at 18h00 while the performances on 24, 26 September and 3 October begin at 15h00. Tickets cost R60 per person for matinees (afternoon performances) and R80 per person for the evening shows.
