FLAMENCO COMPANY LIVES THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF “¡VIDORRA!” – A LIFE MEANT TO BE LIVED (ALL PROCEEDS TO THE LEUKAEMIA FOUNDATION OF SA)
24-25th June, 9pm, Nexus Centre, Adelaide.
Marduk Flamenco’s latest production ‘¡Vidorra!’ presents a night of passionate Spanish music and dance in an intimate cabaret setting. ‘¡Vidorra!’, roughly translated “a life meant to be lived”, expresses through music and dance the range of emotions in everyday life. For the artists of Marduk Flamenco, this is particularly important as it reflects the highs and lows of life experienced by a close friend of the company, recently diagnosed with Leukaemia.
From the joy of an Alegria to the despair of the Solea, the dancers and musicians highlight Flamenco’s ability to express the variety of emotions in life. “Flamenco allows us to convey through music and dance how we feel, regardless of whether that emotion is playful or more serious. It is something that goes beyond the individual and is more a shared experience” says guitarist Marduk Gault.
Flamenco’s sense of community is evident through the dancers’ ‘jaleo’ (shouts of encouragement) as they cheer each other on through fast-paced footwork sections and slow expressive dances. Guitar, Cajon (flamenco drum) and Flute entwine together to complement the dancers’ footwork and hand clapping in a showcase of the sounds and emotions of Flamenco.
‘¡Vidorra!’ is dedicated to the company’s close friend, with all proceeds donated to the Leukaemia Foundation of South Australia. Two shows only – don’t miss out!
