Flamenco at the Yardbird

Co-Presented by Yardbird Suite

A rare opportunity to experience Flamenco as it is meant to be: live and up close.

  • May 12, 2024
    7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Singer Celedonio Garrido, from Seville, Spain, joins leading Flamenco dancers and musicians from across Western Canada for an intimate evening of flamenco dance, guitar, piano, and song.

Flamenco dancers Claire Marchand, Jane Ogilvie, and Rosanna Terracciano have explored their own creative trajectories since meeting years ago as emerging dancers. Now, as established artists, each has played an integral role in establishing a Flamenco presence in Western Canada. Though their paths have crossed as artists, colleagues, and friends in many ways over the years, post-pandemic they decided it was time to formally create a project where they would have the chance to collaborate. After inviting preeminent Flamenco guitarist and dance accompanist Peter Mole, they discovered Spanish singer Celedonio Garrido was to be on the prairies for a brief time this Spring. Out of that serendipity, Flamenco at the Yardbird was born.

Experience the mesmerizing interaction of soulful singing, intricate guitar, percussive footwork and expressive dance of the Flamenco “tablao.” Expect the magical intensity, improvisation and inspiration that can only be felt in the encounter of artists who live and breathe Flamenco.
