Back Stage : Café de Chinitas 2010


During Cafe de Chinitas 2010, I managed to film what happens backstage and on stage. Here are a few excerpts from the show. In this video I show some of the preperation before the show and a few clips from the show it self. A few surprises are thrown in as well.

Mozaico Flamenco Dance Theatre and Caravan World Rhythms are proud to present Café de Chinitas, “Viñetas del Mozaico” Dance Collection. This colourful flamenco dance spectacular showcases 18 dancers in a dozen vignettes featuring a mosaic of music settings ranging from pure flamenco, flamenco fusion, classical, and pop to the unique Asian fusion of Vancouver’s internationally renowned Orchid Ensemble.

Cafe de Chinitas 2010 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.
