La Otra Orilla celebrates the timeless appeal of flamenco
On Thursday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m., acclaimed flamenco dance company La Otra Orilla brings Unplugged to the Fredericton Playhouse.
Recognized for taking a radical approach to flamenco, La Otra Orilla is based on a trans-disciplinary collaboration between dancer and choreographer Myriam Allard and singer-director Hedi Graja.
The company embodies and celebrates the timeless and universal appeal of flamenco. The artistic directors rely on their in-depth knowledge of the nuances of this art to suggest a hybrid language that is modern and poetic, creating strong productions that are firmly rooted in the present.
Unplugged marks the Montreal-based company’s return to the traditional style of flamenco presentation. At the heart of this spontaneous, cabaret-style performance lies an intimate conversation between song, dance and guitar, in which each element reveals itself, while also defining the others.
Featuring live music on stage, Unplugged is a powerful, dynamic show that appeals to purist aficionados, as well as flamenco newcomers.
Tickets for La Otra Orilla are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
