Stomping feet and swaying skirts, this art form will evoke passion and energize your visual and audible sense. It’s passionate, seductive and shrouded in mystery.
At the Silk Road Festival, Flamenco Rosario will be presenting a traditional setup of Flamenco dance, called ‘Cuadro Flamenco’. This will involve dancers performing solos, duos and group work alongside live musicians.
The company continuously strives to nurture the form’s hybridized roots in Sephardic, Persian, Gypsy and Indian cultures as well as incorporate Spanish and Latin American influences on the style, in addition to the local environment of North America and Western Society.
This specific artistic drive is evident in the many Main Stage performances, guest artists selected to perform, community outreach activities and training local students are given. Most recent performances include “Quadrilogue Affective” (2015) and “La Monarca” (Premiered in 2015, toured in 2018).
Rosario Ancer Flamenco Arts Society (RAFAS) is an independent, non-profit society and a registered charity. The company presents the annual Vancouver International Flamenco Festival in September (in which these performers participate in various smaller events alongside international guest artists we bring in).
