The next day in Vancouver is the long-awaited and intriguing Flamenco event ‘táctil’ presented by New Works and Raices y Alas Flamenco
tactil

The piece explores the possibilities of percussive dance and the manipulation of sound by using unexpected dance surfaces in a collaborative environment.

‘táctil’ delves into a large range of sonic textures, examining contemporary expressions of flamenco dance. The piece brings together dancers: Andrea Williams, Michelle Harding, Maria Avila, and Dayna Szyndrowski, alongside musicians: Meaghan Williams, Krystle Dos Santos, Jill Russell, Liam MacDonald. The eight artists weave together individual styles in a rhythmic synthesis.
