Toronto International Flamenco Festival
The 6th Annual Toronto International Flamenco Festival creates a breathtaking experience, bringing together explosive traditional Flamenco with a taste of the unexpected by the most innovative and critically acclaimed performers from Spain and Canada. This year’s festival features one of the most awarded artists from Spain and abroad: Rafaela Carrasco, in her first appearance in Canada, in her show “Vamos al Tiroteo”. This show won two major awards at the Biennal of Flamenco of Seville: Best Prize Giraldillo Dancer and Press Prize for the Best Choreography. Critics have raved about this show:
“The applause meter reached its peak. It reached that level which, fueled by foot stomping, clapping and even olés to the beat, is only achieved two or three times throughout the festival.” – Silvia Calado, Jerez, Spain.
“Carrasco gives Flamenco an exciting but respectful twist.” – Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe.
In addition, be ready to see some spectacular performances by our home grown Canadian artists.
Rafaela Carrasco’s show is scheduled on October 20th, but this festival also proposes you a complete series of activities for all Flamenco lovers (workshops, films, live acts, etc.). The program will be published on the official website in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
