Flamenco Queer By Ana González and Frederick Bernas

Documentary / Film Screening

This event has passed
A group of seven male flamenco dancers gather on and around a wooden bench, watching and clapping as one of their number performs, a red ruffled skirt flaring out. They all wear full-length dresses with layers of ruffles, their long black hair parted in the centre and smoothed down.

After three decades of hiding his feminine impulses, renowned Spanish dancer Manuel Liñán comes out to challenge convention by pursuing his love of performing flamenco – dressed as a woman – in a conservative society with rigid cultural traditions.

The film screening will be followed by a short Q&A with the film directors and chaired by Flamenco Festival producer Miguel Marin.
