FIN DE FIESTA FLAMENCO: Wednesday August 5, 2015, 8:00pm. $17 advance/$20 at the door, at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse Advance tickets: https://findefiestaingibsons.eventbrite.ca This esteemed flamenco ensemble brings Spanish inspiration to Canadian soil. Made up of Canadian and American flamenco artists who divide their time between North America and Seville, Spain, FIN DE FIESTA has been presenting electric performances at festivals and theatres across the continent since its founding in 2012 by artistic director and acclaimed Canadian dancer Lia Grainger. The name FIN DE FIESTA translates to “End of the Party”, a reference to the open jam session that occurs at the end of a traditional flamenco show in Spain when the true improvisational and spirited nature of flamenco shows itself. It is this lively spirit – unpredictable and unrestrained – that inspires their work. FIN DE FIESTA is led by Grainger and accompanied by guitarist Dennis Duffin and a wide range of talented guest artists from the United States and Canada. In Gibsons, FIN DE FIESTA will be joined by Los Angeles-based singer Daniel Azcarate, who has been making waves in Seville, Spain in recent years, performing to rave reviews at the flamenco city’s famed local clubs and theatres. Also performing will be British Columbia flamenco dance sensation Michelle Harding, who has been wowing audiences for years as both a soloist and member of Vancouver dance company Al Mozaico Flamenco Dance Theatre. FIN DE FIESTA will perform at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse for one night only. “Simply Awesome!” – The Kitchener-Waterloo Record.
