Flamenco Biennale Nederland
The Flamenco Biennale Netherlands is an international performing arts festival with one of Europes oldest art forms, flamenco, at its heart. Since 2006, it has signaled the latest developments in the genre and offers a sample of contemporary flamenco art, with performances and concerts in which the tradition enters into exciting alliances and cross-pollinations with contemporary dance and music, jazz, classical, baroque and oriental music.
A contemporary melting pot
The festival presents flamenco - mainly through its own creations and (co)productions - as a beautiful hybrid, a contemporary melting pot, as it once came into existence, as an art form that stands firmly in this time. The Flamenco Biennale Netherlands steps with its artists with great ambition and pleasure right through and beyond the boundaries of the genre. It brings flamenco to the cutting edge, rhythms that stir, touch and disrupt, with headstrong, visionary makers, big stars and young up-and-coming talent. The Flamenco Biennale has thus become 'a unique flamenco refuge in the world, where art is examined, stretched and turned inside out'. (Volkskrant).
