Flamenco in the Six! by FabCollab
$35 | Reserve tickets via Eventbrite
Doors open at 7 pm
FabCollab presents Flamenco in the Six!, a rare opportunity to see a collection of esteemed and prolific flamenco artists from Toronto and Montreal onstage together for the first time. See and hear the brilliant artists that keep this passionate art form thriving in Canada. This is flamenco at its most authentic — raw, wild, and deeply improvisational in nature.
The evening will feature two 45-minute sets with a 20-minute intermission. Artists will remain after the performance to mingle with the audience.
Five of the country's most acclaimed flamenco artists come together for the first time onstage at the only off-site event of the Aga Khan Museum's 2022 Duende Flamenco Festival. Hailed as “Canada’s own pan-global diva,” Tamar Ilana has been headlining festivals around the world with her ensemble, Ventanas. Dancer Virginia Castro was born in Córdoba and trained in the city’s prestigious conservatory before relocating to Toronto and joining the award-winning Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company. Dancer Makeda Benitez has just returned from two-years of intense training in Seville, the birthplace of flamenco, where she performed to much acclaim. Matt Sellick is a prolific Toronto-based flamenco guitarist from Thunder Bay who has received international recognition for his impressive repertoire of solo work. Miguel Medina is one of the most in-demand flamenco cajon players in the country, regularly accompanying contemporary flamenco company La Otra Orilla in Montreal.
Founded by five of Toronto’s key performing artists and arts advocates, FabCollab is a music initiative that fosters artistic creation and collaboration. Their aim is to address the challenges faced in the music and arts community as a result of the pandemic and are committed to amplifying minority and underrepresented groups, particularly BIPOC and female-identifying artists.
