GUEST SPEAKERS

ANNALOUISE PAUL

Slaying the myths and rebuilding the narrative, Flamenco's roots remain a mystery whilst socio-political periods have changed its course and expansion internationally. With a wide diversity of artists to follow, who are some of the pioneers now and how they are responding to global shifts in gender politics, climate change and identity in their works?

Sydney choreographer-performer, Annalouise Paul will dialogue about contemporary expression in Flamenco in Spain and the Asia Pacific having just returned from Malaysia and India.

Annalouise draws from her Sephardi ancestry to explore Flamenco. As a dance-maker and performer her

choreographic works explore identity and transformation at the intersection of traditional and contemporary forms.
