L.A. Studio Opening Tonight

An old brick factory becomes a new art space

L.A. Studio, a design studio located in Madrid fell in love with the venue as soon as they saw it. Perforated walls through which the wind passed with a ceiling like in hangars made the trick!

Tonight, from 9pm, we can experience the mixture of its industrial aspect with 20th century style decoration, among which we can find a piece of local artist Willie Marquez.

L.A. Studio is located on: Km 6,2 Road Ibiza to Santa Eulalia 07800 Ibiza

Antonio Canales at Flamenco Nights

Antonio Canales at Flamenco Nights

Great beginning of Flamenco Nights at Destino

Last week was the first night of season 2017 and it couldn’t have a better start! Josemi Carmona ‘Habichuela’ and his friends, Rafita de Madrid, Luis Amador, Mati, Marina Valiente and special guest Farru were in charge of colouring the night with their music, dance and voices!

Marina Valiente

So, who will be at Destino this week? The great Antonio Canales!

Son and grandson of artists, he became interested in ballet from an early age. His first professional opportunity was given by the Spanish National Ballet, where he soon became the company’s solo dancer and, for which, he has choreographed Two shows: ‘Grito’ (1998) premiered at New York City Center and ‘A Ciegas’ (1999), with which Canales made his début at the Teatro de la Zarzuela as BNE’s guest.
Before starting his own company, which was presented in Bilbao in 1992 with the staging of ‘A ti, Carmen Amaya’ and ‘Siempre Flamenco’, Antonio Canales developed a solo career as a flamenco interpreter, required at important international Galas in which he shared scenarios with great figures like Carmen Amaya, Maya Plisétskaya or Carla Fracci among others.
Leading his company, Canales has signed acts and successes Such as ‘Torero’ (1993), ‘Gitano’ (1997), ‘La Cenicienta’ (2000), ‘Ojos Verdes’ (2003) and ‘Carmen Carmela’.
The choreographer and ‘bailaor’ from Seville has also starred in the film ‘Vengo’ and is the author of the novel ‘Sangre de Albero’.
He received the National Dance Prize in 1995 and he is member of the CID UNESCO since 2013; In 2017 he received the Silver Slipper by Indanza Association.

Another special guest of the night is Mónica Fernández

Born in Barcelona and graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Seville, bailaora Mónica Fernández expanded her training in classical Spanish and flamenco with ‘maestros’ such as La Chana, Manolete, Mercé Esmeralda, Ciro, Javier Latorre and Antonio Canales. She has several prizes, among them, one of the Minas de la Unión Contest in 1994’s edition. Few artists as young as she can brag to have a career as extensive as hers. She has been part of companies such as La Chana, Manolete, Antonio Canales, Tito Losada, Juan de Juan or Rafael Amargo, with whom he acted as the first dancer in the shows Poeta in New York and Tiempo muerto. Also with Antonio Canales has represented main characters in Narciso, Torero or Gitano in which she was the solo dancer with more than 900 representations.
Canales relied on her to act as a stepsister in Cinderella as well as to teach at his school, where she has carried out almost all her teaching activity. In 2009 she worked as Choreography Assistant in the television program “Fama” (Cuatro TV) with Antonio Canales; as soloist with Marta Heredia’s Company; as the first dancer with the Tito Losada’s Company, in the show “Entre telones” and in Cape Verde with the show “El alma en un momento” by Casa Patas Foundation.

Alongside Antonio Canales and Mónica Fernández will be Josemi Carmona, Rafita de Madrid, Luis Amador and Mati.

All together, it promises to be a great night.

‘Ibiza Head to Toes’ – Exhibition

’Ibiza Head to Toes’ – Exhibition

Sunday 18th December, from 6 to 9pm – Cas Costas

Cas Costas hosts for the first time an exhibition since the new owners took possession of this emblematic place of the island. The exhibition of the photographer Giuseppe Concas is unveiled as a permanent point of sale of his photographs on the island.

Giuseppe Concas was born in Sardinia and for 18 years he made contact with the island of Ibiza and made with its people quickly. Photography has been a part since his childhood and accompanies him in a self-taught way, he says that: “Photography allows me to capture a moment and relive it past time, it is also an escape route where I take refuge and see reality from another approach”. Lights and shadows, day and night, color and black and white are represented in the work of this artist.

This exhibition is dedicated to the Pagés dance and to the Ibizan customs. From a respectful vision towards the customs that the artist has made of his own, with this heartfelt homage he expresses his gratitude for a different way of seeing the island and its people.

The photographs that have been taken spontaneously in different cultural acts, are presented in large and medium format in color or black and white according to the inspiration of the artist, always with natural light and without any type of photo retouching.

It is no coincidence that 18 works are presented, on the 18th at 18.00hrs, as a reminder of his 18 years on the island. He also wants with this exhibition to pay homage to Esperanza Marí Serra de Cas Costas on her saints day, Ball Pagés promoter on the Island.

Anem al Cine, with Hitchcock/Truffaut

Thursday 13th at Multicines Ibiza – 8.30 & 10.30 pm

A Kent Jones documentary.

Synopsis

In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting—used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut—this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.

Josemi Carmona ‘Habichuela’, guitarist and composer, is considered the succesor of Paco de Lucía. Although, his modesty guides him to deny such an statement and name his own father, Pepe Habichuela, as the real succesor of such a great guitarrist as Paco de Lucía was.

Josemi, was the conductor of the night, but he was in very good company. Luis Amador on the percussion and Rafita de Madrid’s captivaiting voice were the ones to open the night.
