During rehearsals for a flamenco show we get to see Kasandra “La China, Artistic Director of Mozaico Flamenco Dance Theatre, putting the whole show together. Despite the pressure, she manages to direct “Café de Chinitas 2010 – Viñetas del Mozaico Dance Collection” with humour. Her charming character transforms the hard labour into a fun experience for members of Mozaico Flamenco Dance company.

Cafe de Chinitas is a true mosaic. Each piece is carefully crafted, individually coloured and brilliantly conceived. Each fits perfectly in place to create a larger picture informed by an artistic vision that unifies diversity under an overarching expressive form: flamenco. The result is a dazzling, innovative presentation of an impressive array of cultural, musical and aesthetic influences.
