Sintonía presents Tattooed, an experimental flamenco dance performance about survivors’ strength and resilience.
Sintonía is a contemporary flamenco dance company created by Fanny Ara and Marina Elana based in Oakland, California. The company’s mission is to create thought-provoking, culturally relevant dance productions though the powerful language of flamenco. By combining traditional elements of flamenco with contemporary movement and music, Sintonía wants to explore themes that will challenge social norms and inspire change. Sintonia’s first production, Tattooed, premieres at the Presidio Theatre on October 4 & 5, 2019.
Tattooed is an experimental flamenco dance performance that gives voice to survivors marked by abuse. Consisting of a series of theatrical vignettes that utilizes each dancer and musician as a player in the narrative, this show illustrates stories that have scarred, yet shaped their lives. Ultimately, Tattooed is a proclamation of strength, resilience, and seeks to challenge people’s perspectives on flamenco and survivors.
