Viñetas del Mozaico (Café de Chinitas Series) [Win tickets]

For those of you who are disappointed that you don’t live in the suburbia and you may not be able to attend the performance of Romeo and Juliet (and who love Flamenco too), fear not. I have another Flamenco dance performance to promote, and it’s right in the heart of the downtown core of Vancouver: Viñetas del Mozaico.

Mozaico Flamenco Dance Theatre is pleased to present “Viñetas del Mozaico” as a part of the Café de Chinitas series. This flamenco dance show will showcase a dozen dance vignettes to a mosaic of music including classical, flamenco puro, flamenco fusion, pop, the Orchid Ensemble and more.

I found the Café de Chinitas series extremely intriguing:

Café de Chinitas is an enchanted cafe where red-golden cheong sams and Asian melodies fuse with flamenco’s virtuosity and bravado. This unique performance marks the first time the ‘East meets West’ fusion has ever been seen on a Vancouver stage.

Would love to win these tickets… I had a taste of Karen Flamenco’s performance months ago at Café Kino, and it was absolutely enthralling.

My best dance experience can’t be summarized as a single one. It was a series of them. It all started one evening in Montreal, when a patron of Hurley’s Irish Pub decided to teach me how to dance to Celtic music. It turned out that I had a knack for it. Quite surprisingly actually, considering that, growing up, my sister always received the compliments as the dancer in the family, while I was told that I was “stiff as a board”.

After I became comfortable dancing, there was not a Friday and Saturday where I didn’t head to Hurley’s to dance to music performed by Jonathan Moorman (on the fiddle) and Patrick Lesyk (vocals and guitar). That place became my second home.

I’d spin, and spin, and spin. And over 9 years since leaving Montreal, I still miss it.

Sláinte!

My best dance experience is the very first ballet I saw with the Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, a group of men who dress up in tutu’s and do all the ballets in a farce format. Hilarious and a good introduction to those who have never seen a ballet before.

I want to win tickets to ‘Viñetas del Mozaico’.
The most illuminating dance experience I’ve experienced is a tie between
LaLaLa Human Steps’ 1987 New Demons (when the first routine was produced at full speed and full volume before the ‘official’ start time when people were getting to their seats. An absolute example of the power of dance) and Maria Pages’ performance at the Orpheum in Vancouver last February. The most sensual dance show I’v seen.

I would very much like to win tickets as I am saving money in order to travel to Spain to study flamenco myself. I have a great respect for Kasandra and her cuadro, having taken lessons with her in the past.
My best dance experience…being in an extremely difficult class in Spain, being completely captivated by my advanced classmates’ footwork and having a moment of realization, where all self-consciousness disappeared as I just danced.

The best dance performance I’ve seen was a combination of Opera and Flamenco in Barcelona a few years ago. It even made my friend who’d never watched a Flamenco performance a fan!
