What happens when flamenco is “coupled with” with one of the loudest and most radical music genres? Firebird is what happens: the first creative collaboration between dancer and performance artist Ana Predin Pandur and musician Giani Poposki, lead vocalist of Noctiferia, an internationally renowned heavy-metal band. A crossbreed between brash rock concert and flamenco choreography ‘peppered with’ performance art. Searching for a fragile balance between the intensity of contemporary flamenco and the powerful sound of metal, Firebird is full of contradictions, incorporating loud music and lyrical physicality, pulsating rhythms and hypnotic guitar riffs.
