As one of the few celebrated festivals devoted to Flamenco Art outside of Spain, the VIFF has since its beginnings in 1990 grown to a mature understanding of Vancouver’s multicultural audiences by nurturing the form’s hybridized roots in Sephardic, Persian, Gypsy and Indian cultures and by striving to reflect and connect its diverse sociocultural identity through work narratives underlining flamenco’s universal message of humanistic tolerance. Now a weeklong annual event, the festival lends its visibility throughout multiple venues and locales in Vancouver, from Granville Island’s Waterfront Theatre to downtown’s Playhouse Theatre, Scotiabank Dance Centre and Vancouver Public Library, and Lower Mainland’s the Kino Cafe. With almost thirty years of flamenco presence behind it, the festival brings the city into stronger light for younger generations of dancers all around the world, while tying new relationships with growing sister organizations across the nation through its eastern border, helping to forge a more integrated Canadian identity of flamenco.
