Compañía Pepa Molina
BUSH BAILANDO (Extended)
Winner: Most Interesting Australian Group or Artist 2016
Critics Choice – Dance Australia
Bush Bailando is a new Flamenco dance work conceived and performed by Pepa Molina.
The work is an exploration of bilateral heritage and identity, with inspiration being derived from Australian nature, in particular the natural surroundings of Western Sydney.
This is a collaboration with renowned Spanish electroacoustic soundscape designer Hector Gonzalez Sanchez and Flamenco guitarist & Composer Marco Van Doornam, who draw their inspiration from the sounds of the Australian bush and its fauna creating a multilayered sound that reflects the search for Australian identity in
The work interlaces four genres from the flamenco song family tree. Linked to these genres are the four elements; water, wind, earth and fire.
Pepa is joined on stage by the internationally acclaimed musicians Marco van Doornam and Stuart Vandegraaf.
Pepa is a skilled and powerful dancer that presents interesting and engaging material…”
