Salud Botella & Jason Webster on Flamenco
Saturday 18 June 7-8:30 pm
Shute Church, EX13 7PT
Salud and Jason live and breathe flamenco in all its forms. This event will bring a combination of dance and performance by Salud with some context of the music, poetry, drama and history from writer Jason Webster. Born in Spain and based in south-west England, Salud Bottella started dancing at the age of eight. She has been schooled in Flamenco, Spanish Classical and Folk, Ballet and Contemporary, as well as training as an actress at the Escuela del Actor in Valencia. Salud draws on her wide-ranging artistic background to perform highly acclaimed and unique one-woman shows combining dance with elements such as poetry, humour, improvised audience interaction and rap. Her themes include the passion and mystery of duende - the enigmatic force at the heart of Flamenco - as well as self-expression and discovery through dance. Jason Webster is a writer and author of numerous books including Duende, Art of Flamenco and Violencia. This event will launch his latest book on flamenco.
