FORM DANCE PROJECTS AND RIVERSIDE THEATRES PRESENT

A DOUBLE BILL OF CONTEMPORARY FLAMENCO SOLOS 

ANNALOUISE PAUL: FORGE

PEPA MOLINA: BUSH BAILANDO

Two of the leading exponents of contemporary flamenco dance in Australia share this exciting double bill of original solo performances accompanied by live musicians.

FORGE is a striking new dance-music collaboration between award-winning choreographer Annalouise Paul and piano-sound designer Marianthe Loucataris and vocalist Helen Rivero. Evoking a blacksmith’s iron furnace, FORGE casts flamenco anew through contemporary dance and the percussive power of the piano and Sephardi song – out of the fires of invention, life forges on…

Internationally acclaimed Pepa Molina explores the displacement of her Andalusian heritage within the Australian landscape in BUSH BAILANDO. Inspired by the natural environment surrounding her home in Western Sydney, Pepa reinterprets traditional flamenco choreography through the sounds and rhythms of the Australian bush, composed in an original score by Hector González Sánchez and Marco van Doornum

This is Flamenco like you’ve never seen it before!

Join the Saturday evening post-show fiesta when dance lovers and musicians are invited to jam with the artists. 

“You can see brushstrokes of contemporary dance in Pepa Molina’s work, that far from disturbing the flamenco dance, enrich it with new dimensions” J. Fernàndez Bustos, Granada Hoy

“Credit must be given to Annalouise Paul. Such forward thinkers are needed to push doors open and to discover new pathways.” Indus Age
