[php snippet=3]

STYLE: Flamenco

Date: Saturday and Sunday

Location: World Dance Feste

Time: 15.40-16.40 (Saturday and Sunday)

Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja present their reinvented flamenco in a new piece entitled Moi&lesAutres. In this solo that involves close communication with the musicians, themselves actively commited to the choreography, La Otra Orilla presents a spirited variation on the sometimes complex art of relating to one and other. With original music by composer Caroline Planté, this production reveals yet another version of the company’s hybrid flamenco language. Iconoclast, poetic and firmly rooted in the present.  

The Edinburgh Mela are delighted to welcome La Otra Orilla all the way from Canada to present a specially adapted version of this wonderful show at the 2015 festival, don’t miss it!
