Flamenco is an art form built on three Abrahamic faiths and the musical expressions of three continents – at first glance, these traditions and contexts seems disparate and irreconcilable. But flamenco is the ultimate example of what happens when artists look beyond limitations imposed by the outside world. The dance form continues to evolve and is shaped by scenes across the globe, as you will experience during the performances and film screening at our fourth annual Duende: Flamenco Festival. Artists will be demonstrating what awaits on The Other Side of Fear.

Highlights of the week-long festival include:

  • Qudud Flamenco is a world-premiere performance in collaboration with the Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal, which fuses flamenco with a Syrian classical-music form that originated in Andalusia.
  • Flamenco Arabia, the Canadian Arabic Orchestra’s presentation of music and dance that blends the Spanish sounds of Andalusia with contemporary Arabic music.
  • Carmen Romero, principal dancer of the Compañía Carmen Romero, based in Toronto, who is a towering force on the North American flamenco dance scene.
