QPAC’s Concert Hall stage was set ablaze during this year’s Brisbane Festival when Camerata joined forces with Flamenco Fire, Australia’s only national flamenco company. Acclaimed flamenco artists direct from Spain (including Olayo Jiménez and Francesca ‘La Chica’), and Australia’s finest flamenco musicians and dancers (including Andrew Veivers, Simone Pope and Fernando Mira) came together to celebrate two decades on the stage.
After two standing ovations, audiences were treated to a special impromptu solo flamenco from Camerata’s own Brendan Joyce (Artistic Director), Clare Cooney (former Upbeat program member) and Alice Buckingham (Artistic Associate). New careers perhaps? Watch this space.
