Compania Pepa Molina
Bush Bailando interlaces four genres from the flamenco song family tree, linking them to the four elements; water, wind, earth and fire, in an exploration of bilateral heritage and identity, inspired by Australian nature.
Bush Bailando is a new Flamenco dance work conceived and performed by Pepa Molina. Molina draws inspiration from the natural environment, in a collaboration with renowned Spanish Soundscape Designer/Composer Hector Gonzalez Sanchez who is inspired by the sounds of the Australian bush and its fauna, creating a multilayered sound that reflects the search for Australian identity. This is contrasted by the powerful and hypnotic flamenco guitar of Marco Van Doornam performing his original creations live alongside instrumentalist Stuart Vandegraaf. Visceral flamenco deep song is drawn from timeless recordings of the past, resembling the reminiscent echo of Andalusian Spanish heritage embodying a sense of displacement.
