The second International Bi Flamenko Festival continues to spread the message outlined by its first edition. The Festival was established in the desire to demonstrate to the national audiences that flamenco is a contemporary, dynamic, creative and highly innovative form of dance and music art. Although firmly grounded in rich tradition, flamenco belongs to the present, with an orientation towards the future. The artists featured at our second flamenco biennial display these same characteristics – a selection of incredibly young, compelling and courageous performers who dare to challenge boundaries and push the envelope whilst oozing charisma and charm. Moreover, a significant detail must not be overlooked, – Slovenians are not only passionate flamenco enthusiasts, we are also passionate flamenco artists. The festival will premiere two national productions, creations that rank these performers alongside Spanish ‘young hands’ at this beautiful art form. In short: music, dance, a combination of both, film, workshops, masterclasses, talks…, as well as two deejay events where visitors will be cast in the role of dancers. After all, getting together is what it’s all about. Wouldn’t you agree? Then we’ll see you around.
