Studio Flamenco is a dynamic group of flamenco dancers and musicians directed by sisters Susi Masi and Emma Fernee. Established in 2004, Studio Flamenco has featured at WOMADelaide, the Adelaide International Guitar Fesitval and numerous other festivals and events throughout Australia. Both Susi and Emma have studied flamenco extensively in Seville and Madrid with maestros such as Manuel Betanzos, Angel Atienza, Alicia Marquez and Ramon Martinez (Paco Peña Company).
Joining Studio Flamenco for this production is flamenco artist and children’s entertainer, Zoe Velez. Zoe’s previous work has included touring with The Wiggles throughout Australia and as the Blue Wiggle in a number of Spanish speaking countries. Zoe is a graduate of both NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts) and the Fundacion de Cristina Heeren (Seville, Spain) where she studied flamenco singing.
The Australian Council for the Arts described Studio Flamenco as ‘some of Australia’s most accomplished flamenco artists’ with a ‘contagious’ enthusiasm for flamenco. Dance Informa described a recent performance as “passionate, dramatic and highly entertaining… At times the gentle rain of the flamenco guitar flowed over the audience, at other times, the audience was vibrating in their chests from the rhythms of dancers’ feet and castanets”.
