Clinard Dance, now in its 20th season, began their Flamenco Quartet Project in 2014 dedicating the project to artistic excellence and exploration. Led by an open minded spirit of collaboration, The Flamenco Quartet Project, seeks to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor traditional flamenco and their sharedpassion for music and dance discovery.
The roster of performers boasts remarkably diverse talents, including composers, arrangers, improvisers and choreographers who bring a range of cultural influences to the group, from Balkan Jazz to klezmer; flamenco and classical Arabic and Spanish art forms. The unique camaraderie within the group retains the intimacy and spontaneity unique to small ensemble work.
The group consists of nationally and internationally renowned artists, including dancer Wendy Clinard, violinist Steve Gibons, vocalist/guitarist Marija Temo, and dancer/percussionist Jose Moreno.
Our March 9th performance is in conjunction with the Chicago Flamenco Festival. We will also share new compositions with guest Son Jarocho musician Camilo Rincon.
