After two sold out seasons in Durban in 2010 and 2011, ‘Familia Flamenco’, comes to Cape Town for a brief season at the Little Theatre, Orange Street until December 16. This unique production, directed by Juana Vargas is a collaboration between the Linda Vargas Company and Flamenco Del Sur. It boasts a typical feature of flamenco where the family unit is evident in the gypsy culture. Performances are from Thursday to Saturday, November 13 to 15 at 8pm and Sunday November 16 at 3pm.
The name of the production is born out of the many family relationships that exist within the cast: sisters, brothers; husband/wife, mother/son, mother/daughter and aunt/nephew. This rare dynamic will be celebrated in the Cape Town production displaying traditional flamenco by a cast of 13 performers that include Linda Vargas, Juana Vargas and Demi Fernandez who are highly seasoned and experienced artists.
Guest artists include Linda Vargas, Demi Fernandez, Ramon Fernandez and Enrique Marin.
This production celebrates the Flamenco tradition in its purest form capturing the palos, moods and rhythms with all its fire and passion.
