A cast of Toronto-based artists showcase flamenco’s elemental voices in a selection of original tablaos captured inside the Aga Khan Museum. Using a variety of Museum spaces as a canvas for their explorations, these dancers and musicians each trace a different path down flamenco’s family tree.


Part of the Museum’s Duende Festival, Fantasía premiered on Thursday, November 26, 2020. Click the video below to replay the performance for free!


Fantasía is a collection of five dream-like “visions” imagined by Toronto singer and dancer Shirlita La Pili and brought to life with the help of dancer Lia Grainger, vocalist and dancer Tamar Ilana, guitarist Nicolas Hernandez, and percussionist Derek Gray. This series of instrumental encounters, vocal expressions called cantes, and exuberant dance numbers illuminate the eclectic origins and broad range of the flamenco tradition.
