Sublime indeed. 

Flamenco-fusion show that sets the pulse racing


The written program for Sublime-Flamenco Valentine talks about pushing boundaries and fusing genres in dance and music, and the show itself certainly delivered. It offers 90 minutes of flamenco married with blues and opera and Spanish guitar and voice. Each piece is a marvel of choreography, both in the dances themselves and in how the other types of performers are woven in around them. Singer Reeny Smith brought the house to stillness with her amazing version of “Love me or Leave me”. Guitarist Jose Vega had hearts and feet pounding with his solo “Bulerias” and the whole company had the audience on their feet with the soul-stirring “Raices”. The costumes are a gorgeous riot of colour and sensuous fabrics. The dresses become an intricate part of some dances: fabric is wound and unwound around the dancers’ feet in a daring display of coordination or manipulated to become a giant gyrating flower. Sublime indeed!
