Salón Flamenco

Tickets $32 - $65

Mon 20 - Thu 23 Feb | 1 hour Stonewall Hotel

Love Flamenco? This radical performance event undermines expectations and ignores the rules. Live performances, film screenings, workshops and panel talks with local and international artists.

Experimental. Raw. Adventurous, Salón Flamenco explores gender, politics, history, movement and sound, de-mystifying this traditional art form.

Artists challenges boundaries and expectations of tradition through their unique lens’ and connection with Flamenco, questioning what it means to be Australian practising far from the motherland of Spain.

Connecting with pulse of what is piping-hot across Europe, the artists share a philosophy of practice, to open Flamenco to wider arts audiences and move away from exotic ethnicity to its contemporary relevance in Australia.

We hope you enjoy this very special edition for Sydney World Pride 2023!

    "Paul is strong and fiery. A compelling performance. " [Annalouise Paul] Arts Hub 2016

    “I witness her ecstasy and heartache as she embodies the graceful and the grotesque, her being fraught with longing and desire. An arrestingly beautiful performance.” [Paloma Negra] Fringe Talk 2017

    "Lisa toyed with deconstructing the vocabulary of Flamenco with what seemed like double the passion and intensity." FORM DANCE PROJECTS 2015
