Another dance festival hits Dublin in a few weeks time, and this one has some Spanish flair. The Dublin Flamenco Fesival will run from the 30th Nov to the 7th Dec, and will take place in Smock Alley and St Michan’s Church. Better than sitting in and watching Strictly Come Dancing? I think so.
Dublin Flamenco Festival – Bringing a flavour of Andalucía to Dublin this winter
Dublin Flamenco Festival will offer a feast of flamenco to delight the senses of both aficionados and the newly curious this winter.
Taking place from Sunday 30th November – Sunday 7th December, the festival will present a programme of performances by world class dancers and musicians, classes for adults and children, visual art – and a sherry tasting.
Among the highlights will be an evening with Patricio Hidalgo, designer of this year’s festival image, who will paint as inspired by a live flamenco performance taking place before the audience’s eyes.
Featured artists will include the Camerata Flamenco Project and flamenco guitarist Cano, who has collaborated with Declan O’Rourke.
Nathalie Moyano González, the Dublin-based director of the festival, says, “We are delighted to be bringing leading artists from the contemporary world of flamenco to Ireland, and to offer unique opportunities to learn from these masters.”
Dublin Flamenco Festival 2014 is presented in association with RTÉ lyric fm.
