Esencia Flamenca
Esencia Flamenca - a tribute to Lorca

The Joburg-based Spanish dance company, El Rincon Flamenco, returns to the Joburg Theatre stage (Lesedi Theatre, formerly known as the Fringe and Tesson Theatre) to perform Esencia Flamenca - a showcase that promises passion, drama and rhythmic tapas for the soul!

Directly translated as the 'Essence of Flamenco', Esencia Flamenca's befitting title embodies the true spirit of flamenco and its inexplicable mysticism.

Guest artists:
Demetrios Fernandez (highly acclaimed flamenco guitarist from Durban) and Micah Myles (flamenco guitarist accompaniment), Ndumiso Tafeni (dancer and percussionist from Faya Flamenco Theatre)

The esteemed Dame Hazel Acosta (founder of El Rincon in 1998) will direct the showcase.

Choreographed by Joanne Bobrow, Mireille Lenferna and Rosana Maya

In capturing the essence of flamenco music, song and dance the artist opens the channels for the "duende" to happen. This presence of "duende" is that essence where art is achieved in its highest state and is present throughout Garcia Lorca's work. In a variety of flamenco rhythms from the somber to the lively, the company of dancers together with the musicians weave the essence of all that is flamenco through the exquisite poetry and songs of Garcia Lorca.
