Rosanna Terracciano’s film project – A Quiet Flamenco
Two years ago Canadian dance artist Rosanna Terracciano invited me to participate in her film project A Quiet Flamenco – exposing the introverted, vulnerable and muted aspects of flamenco dance through film. one artist at a time. I am honoured to be one of six artists from across Canada invited for this initial round of films which was just completed in December and includes my work as a flamenco dancer and pianist.
Other artists in this initial series include:
Myriam Allard (Montréal)
Sarah Bronsard (Montréal)
Claire Marchand (Ottawa/Winnipeg)
Veronica Maguire (Victoria)
Oscar Nieto (Vancouver)
Rosanna received the Canada Council for the Arts’ Jacqueline Lemieux Prize in 2017 for this work and is planning to continue to expand the project with more artists in the future.
This month it was a featured article online in The Dance Current – www.thedancecurrent.com/video/quiet-flamenco.
Rosanna will be in Edmonton performing new work on January 11th and 12th at Mile Zero Dance as part of ReLoCate: Experiment #3.
