Gregoíre Pearce and Lindsey Bourassa
Flamenco guitarist and composer Gregoíre Pearce and contemporary flamenco dancer and choreographer Lindsey Bourassa of Bourassa Dance are a flamenco duo based in Portland, Maine. Creating and performing all original music and dance works, they honor and adhere to the traditions of flamenco while simultaneously flexing the boundaries of the art form, integrating unique artistic, conceptual and contemporary visions into their work. This collaboration is an exciting artistic exchange of original compositions and choreography, whereby each artist is creating work in their artistic medium for the other's respective artistic project. In this regard, they will be performing works from Gregoíre Pearce's new album Pluviophile (released September of 2015), as well as selected works from Bourassa Dance's newest contemporary-flamenco production entitled Lobo, due for release in spring/summer of 2016.
Toby Rzepka is a luthier in Portland, Maine, making handmade guitars, violins and viol de gambas by traditional methods updated with a modern focus on data and precision. In a special screening of a delicate short film set to play prior to the music, we watch him build, from start to finish, a flamenco guitar made for a local musician, and learn insights into his craft and philosophy behind instrument-making.
