One enters into Flamenco as one enters into religion.

Rite is the powerful and explosive new flamenco show from Quebec-based multidisciplinary group, La Otra Orilla. Combining dance, voice, guitar, and percussion, these four artists will take the audience along in an energetic and poetic journey of flamenco. At the heart of this artistic proposition lies an intimate conversation where each element reveals itself while defining the other.

Works by acclaimed La Otra Orilla are recognizable for their unique and radical approach to flamenco, reflecting an overall trans-disciplinary vision. Based on the collaboration between dancer and choreographer Myriam Allard and singer-director Hedi Graja, this company embodies and celebrates the timeless and universal appeal of flamenco. The artistic directors rely on their in-depth knowledge of the nuances and modes of this art to suggest a hybrid language that is modern and poetic, creating strong productions that are firmly rooted in the present.
