EDFRINGE - EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL
The Edinburgh Fringe festival, kind of like our home, is where we premiered each one of our new productions so that’s why we will use this page to include and describe them all, and also to tell you what we have been up to in each year.
These are the shows we have produced & created and the ones we have co-produced throughout the years. We have been part of the EdFringe for more than a decade so we have a long list of shows where we have participated. To see the list go to the page past events.
For the EdFringe 2022 we have presented three productions: “Flamenco in Scotland”, “Flamenkids” and Danielo Olivera “The Leith Whistler”. After last year success with “Flamenco in Scotland”, we prepared an entire new show again showcasing several flamenco styles, choreographed and taught by Inma Montero in our online and presencial classes, and performed by our TuFlamenco Performing Group and our usual artists. The second one, “FlamenKids”, is a new production premiered at the edFringe 22. It takes flamenco straight to the wee ones in a journey delivered and performed again by our TuFlamenco Performing Group and our usual artists.
Also we premiered Danielo Olivera “The Leith Whistler”, where Danielo performed on his own quite an original show
As well as our own productions, we were part of “Flamenco Fringe” and “Flamenco Guitar Concert” by Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company, same as in the EdFringe 2021 edition.
2021, as you all can imagine such a weird year because of the pandemic situation and we didnt know what to do regarding registering and prepare new productions or putting back on our previous ones. After giving it some thought, we decided to present two originals productions: “Flamenco in Scotland” and “Rumba Magica”. In the first, “Flamenco in Scotland”, we have showcased several flamenco styles, choreographed and taught during the pandemic times in our online classes, performed by our TuFlamenco performing group. The very first time guitarists and dancers iníciate this adventure which has been very well received by the aficionados. The second one, “Rumba Magica”, is a treat for the senses and a desperate call to bring the happy times back by good, elegant and warm music mixed of the Latin world and the essences of flamenco, all of it brought by exquisite musicians who trusted our taste. For this year we didn’t register our acclaimed “Flamenco Tablao”, which is quite popular among the audiences and followers achieving 5**** in last edition 2019. These “Tablaos” performances are what we have done mainly quite successfully in every EdFringe edition for more than a decade. This year we have joined forces with award-winning Daniel Martinez Flamenco Company, our sister company for which we have worked since its creation in 2017, organising “Flamenco Fringe”, following more or less the same precepts of the tablao flamenco mixed with the award winning Daniel Martinez production “Art of Believing”: an absolute treat for the flamenco aficionados and initiated that has been sold out from day 1.
2019 was officially the first year with TuFlamenco registering shows & productions at the EdFringe. Nothing of what we did before counted and is like we never existed excepting by the many reviews that speak of us in some specific shows. 2019 has been a very prolific year again, for our creativity and we did manage to put on several productions like “Flamenco Tablao” and “Flamenconova” and co-produce another “From India to Triana”. The chosen venue for this was TheSpacesUk, quite an adventure that deserves to be told some other time. The result was a nearly sold out every day performance of “Flamenco Tablao” with incredible reviews from the audiences and a 5***** from some magazine. For the rest of productions more or less the same. Later on, the pandemic situation stopped the projection of these shows and the plans we had for them. Now, they are in stand by until we get back to a more stable situation.
