The weather’s turning colder, but why go south when Toronto’s own Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company is in town? These exciting dancers have been stamping their feet to flamenco-inspired works for 19 years now. In their new program, Alma Flamenca/Flamenco Soul, they premiere three works and revive a recent fave. Inspired by Spanish poet Rafael Alberti, 1999’s Poeta is Enrique’s first narrative work, a duet that uses ballet and flamenco to look at romance and passion. The new pieces are Enigma, a group piece about women and bad luck, Al Son De Caña, inspired by Spanish hill bandits, and Trio, a bravura examination of male and female flamenco energy.
Feeling hot yet? Join the crowd from tonight (November 30) at Premiere Dance Theatre (207 Queen’s Quay West).
