FIN DE FIESTA brings Spanish inspiration to Canadian soil and The Theatre on King
We are four flamenco artists that divide our time between
Canada and Seville, Spain. The name FIN DE FIESTA translates to “End of the Party”, a reference to the open jam session that occurs at the end of a traditional flamenco show in Spain. It is during the fin de fiesta that the true improvisational and spirited nature of flamenco shows itself, and it is that lively spirit — unpredictable and unrestrained — that inspires our work.
FIN DE FIESTA is made up of guitarist Dennis Duffin, singer
Tamar Ilana, and dancers Lia Grainger and Alexandra Talbot.
FIN DE FIESTA is currently mounting their next touring
production, Mala Yerba Nunca Muere (Wild Flowers Never Die). At the core of this show is an exploration of flamenco’s capacity to invoke striking contrasts, from delicate beauty to a fierceness that borders on carnal. From refined to raw, Mala Yerba Nunca Muere incorporates the traditional and the contemporary to create an electrifying portrait of an art form that shatters traditional stereotypes of beauty.
