Claudia Caolin y Compañia
Minar Pasión derives from the shared history of mining, employing Flamenco dance, traditional Cornish Scoot dance, live Flamenco music, commissioned poetry, narration and visual art.
Hardship, Hope and New Horizons- the Cornish and Spanish Diaspora retold in a new multi-media performance by international dance and theatre company: Claudia Caolín Y Compañia.
This latest piece explores the connection between Flamenco and mining, drawing historical parallels between Cornish dance, Flamenco dance and the tradition of passionate song inspired by working in the Andalusian mines.
The show draws on the wealth of music, dance and imagery inspired by the experiences of mining communities of both, Southern Spain and Cornwall.
Flamenco owes much of its origins to those working in the metal and mining industries, with one particular style, the Taranto, being solely born out of the mining experience.
Just as Cornish Tin has been a ticket to foreign lands and new horizons, the Spanish Diaspora enhanced Flamenco song and dance through its contact with mining colonies overseas, incorporating the cultural flavour of Latin-America.
Thousands left, thousands returned - each telling their own, moving individual story.
A theatrical evening awaits which aims to capture the pathos, drama, colour and excitement inherent within the experience of life-risking and life-changing exodus.
