Tango vs Flamenco, a fusion of spirit, style and passion
20 September 2015
The Art of Cadencia is an hour long performance of music, dance and art to represent the sacredness of human connection and emotions. Two major music styles renowned for being raw and emotive, Flamenco and Tango come together in a powerful fusion to represent these connections.
Tango is known as a modern day ‘meditation’ in dance and is a style most renowned for the powerful connection through the physical embrace of the dancers. Traditional Tango music in itself is raw – the distinct wailing sound of the singer or violin often represents nostalgia, loss and history. Unlike tango where the energy is almost like an internal shared connection between dancers, Flamenco artists draw energy from deep within, to expose raw and emotive rhythms, often telling their own experiences through the lyrics or dance. Flamenco also has the power to possess Duende – an ancient soul or spirit of flamenco which produces an emotional and personal response to the music by the artists or even the audience.
The Art of Cadencia will stir the rhythms and the spirit within you. Featuring some of Australia’s best flamenco artists who will join forces with dancers from Argentina, Spain and Australia, this is one show not to be missed!
