Flamenco at Granville Island
Tying together two of my drawing themes - Granville Island and flamenco - NewWorks.ca put on a free flamenco show by Fin de Fiesta outside Performance Works as part of the All Over the Map dance series. It has a great outdoor setting, with a big grassy hill overlooking the stage, but also thick tree cover to give shade on a hot day. A bit different from a smoky little underground bar in Seville at midnight, but the musicians and dancers were just as good, and between shows you can watch the world strolling by, paddling by, sitting by the bay, or trying to capture it all in paint. Next up: Aché Brasil this Sunday and N'nato Bara Fa from Guinea the following Sunday.
