Clinard Dance Flamenco Quartet
Join Clinard Dance Friday, November 6th at 7:00pm at Instituto Cervantes (31 W Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60654) for the world premiere of a piece by the company's newly-formed flamenco repertory quartet.
The quartet represents an exciting collaboration of nationally and internationally renowned flamenco artists, including Artistic Director/Principal Dancer Wendy Clinard, vocalist/guitarist Marija Temo, bassist Alex Wing and violinist Steve Gibons. The new work will feature an original flamenco score by Temo.
"Our flamenco collective strives to incorporate traditional flamenco to create original compositions with the spontaneity that lives in contemporary culture. Our vibrant performance honors flamenco and our passion for musical discovery. Lead by an open-minded spirit of collaboration, we build our original compositions in a way that's familiar and natural." -Wendy Clinard
Both Temo and Clinard's bedrock of sound and movement emerges and departs from their early teachers who taught and lived the flamenco traditions of the early 1900's. These traditions are fused with contemporary American and Gypsy Jazz informed by violinist Steve Gibons and bassist Alex Wing. As a quartet, their outcome transforms the typical flamenco experience into sounds and movement that honor the multiplicity of voices of our current landscape.
