Vancouver International Flamenco Festival

The 2017 Festival proudly presents the local debut of La Moneta at the Vancouver Playhouse on September 23rd. Hailing from Granada, Spain, Fuensanta “La Moneta” possesses a deep expressive dramatic quality and an incredible mastering of compás (the intricate flamenco rhythm). Her innate talent allows her to dance even the most difficult styles as easily as she breathes the ancient form of art. Although her approach seems contemporary, her dancing style seems as ancient as the flamenco that flows through her veins. La Moneta consists of dancer/choreographer Fuensanta “La Moneta”; cantaors, Juan Ángel Tirado and Sergio Gómez “El Colarao”; and guitarist, Luis Mariano.

The festival also features some of the finest Canadian Flamenco artists including performances by Calle Verde (Vancouver) & Christina Tremblay (Quebec) in an exciting mixed bill, Fin de Fiesta (Toronto) and Vancouver’s own Flamenco Rosario performing Nuevo, New, Nouveau at the Waterfront Theatre.
