Raíces y Alas Flamenco returns to the New Works stage with the premiere of del Mar in April 2017. This multimedia collaboration between percussive dancers centres around the theme of water – its sounds and movements, the forms it takes and the stories it inspires. Essential to life but with the force to destroy, the lure and fear of water informs legends, folk tales and spiritual traditions. Water is pivotal in the history of humanity. From solid ice to ethereal mist, the forms it can assume are as varied as human experience.The Raíces y Alas Flamenco Project was conceived by Andrea Williams as a platform for the exploration of the traditions of the art of flamenco and its contemporary expansion in Canada. True to the group’s reputation, del Mar combines traditional elements of flamenco with unexpected modes of music, dance and visual expression.
