LOOKING FOR ELVIS:

Looking for Elvis is both a tribute to and a study of the life of Elvis Presley. It is also based on Laurence Lemieux’s experience of travelling to Graceland in 2012. 


She says,   I was looking for the man. I was surprised to find a pretty regular, simple, loving man, who was himself just looking for his own happiness. The work also takes its inspiration from my desire to reconcile the place of artists in the publicforum, and the artist’s capacity to function in society."


MAN IN BLACK:

Originally commissioned by BalletMet Columbus and premiered there in, 2010, The Man in Black was part of last year’s season at the National Ballet of Canada. A celebration of American working-class grit and of the man whose voice embodied it so movingly, the work features six Cash songs – all covers from the later part of his career (ranging from Ian Tyson’s “Four Strong Winds” to Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My Mind” ) , given visual resonance for an ensemble of three men and a woman, all in cowboy boots.


  Only such a master of his craft as Kudelka could draw from the vernacular of American country-western dance styles to create a work so inventive, so alert to the music and their lyrics, and so deeply moving. It’s a dance you could see time and again, knowing you’d discover some new layer at every viewing.” – Michael Crabb, Toronto Star

This award winning company of Canadian and Spanish singers, musicians and dancers deliver the power of this expressive art with elegance and passion. The Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company never fails to enthrall audiences, eliciting shouts of “ole” and standing ovations. Come and be captivated.

Joining the company from Spain: “El Junco” (dancer), Óscar Lago (guitarist), Manuel Soto (singer) and Matías López (singer).
