About the Event
SENES Flamenco Solo Dance performance featuring: Aya Kitaoji - Dance / Percussion @Alejandro Florez - Flamenco Guitar Luke Koszanski - Flamenco Guitar "El Brujo de Madrid" Angel Mellado - Vocals
Dancer Aya Kitaoji of Senes, understands song and dance as a form of story-telling.
Motivated by the oriental concept of the 5 Elements of Existence (Earth, Fire, Air, Water, Space) and its relationship with our inner and outer world, S.E.N.E.S. explores its parallel concepts; Solitude, Essence, Necessity, Evolution and Synergy through flamenco dance, music and song.
Presented by The Boite in partnership with Harmonic Whale with support from Creative Victoria and Australia Council for the Arts.
In recent times, Aya has worked with 86 year old Spanish guitarist and singer Angel Mellado, who plays, sings and dances with abundant energy. Well loved within Melbourne’s Spanish community, he brings his own stories to every performance.
In the longest locked down city in the world, everybody’s story has changed in the last six months. For dancers, teaching online if at all, and rehearsing alone, the opportunity to reflect on that experience and turn it into a performance is exciting and confirming. Aya brings retrospection and a thoughtful embracing of the future to this Boite concert.
