Chicago, IL – July 30, 2017. Clinard Dance is presenting an afternoon of flamenco featuring the Flamenco Quartet Project at 3PM CST on Sunday, August 20 at the National Museum of Mexican Art, 1852 W 19th St in Chicago. Tickets for the performances are $25 (for general seating) and are on sale now via Brown Paper Tickets.

Clinard Dance is welcoming ticketholders to join in celebrating the art of flamenco as student and guest dancers will be joined by guest musicians.
The Flamenco Quartet Project, which will comprise the second half of the program, is dedicated to exploring new exponents of flamenco. Led by an open-minded spirit, the ensemble seeks to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor traditional flamenco and the shared passion for music and dance discovery. Their roster boasts remarkably diverse talents, including composers, arrangers, improvisers and choreographers who bring a range of cultural influences to the group, from Gypsy jazz and klezmer to flamenco and classical Arabic and Spanish. The group consists of nationally and internationally renowned artists, including dancer Wendy Clinard, violinist Steve Gibons, guitarist and composer Marija Temo, and guest dancer/percussionist/singer Jose Moreno.

Clinard Dance is an interdisciplinary dance company founded in 1999. Artistic Director Wendy Clinard is pioneering a unique approach to contemporary and American-style flamenco, created by a community of artists drawn from a diverse range of disciplines and cultural backgrounds. At the center of each work is an inquiry about people’s place in the world and their sense of belonging. Their productions are developed over several years of research and subsequent artistic reconfiguration. Clinard's work has been described as “physically bold excursions animated by a fierce intelligence.”

After completing a BFA at The Art Institute of Chicago in 1993, Wendy Clinard embarked on a rigorous apprenticeship with flamenco dancer Edo Sie while augmenting her studies in Spain with notable teachers Juana Amaya and Hiniesta Cortez. She has been performing and teaching the art of flamenco for the past 20 years.

Described as a “flamenco triple threat,” Marija Temo is widely recognized as a virtuoso classical/flamenco guitarist, flamenco vocalist, conductor, and former dancer. She actively performs as a soloist with symphony orchestras, in guitar concert series and festivals, and as a flamenco singer/guitar accompanist.

Jazz and ethno-violinist/composer Steve Gibons is a regular performing artist at the Green Mill and other Chicago jazz venues. He leads the Gypsy Rhythm Project, a collaboration of Roma and Chicago jazz players. Gibons also plays with Il-Bulbul Classical Arabic Ensemble. He has traveled widely, making field recordings in the Balkans and has absorbed music from a host of different cultures: blues and jazz from his home town Chicago, Roma and folk music from Southeast Europe, klezmer from Central Europe, classical Arabic Music from the Middle East, and Western European Gypsy Jazz from France. Gibons composed the original score for Clinard’s ‘From the Arctic to the Middle East,’ in which he also played the violin.

Born into a family of famous flamenco artists, Jose Moreno began his flamenco career at age 6 under the guidance of his parents. After his debut at the famous Tablao Costa Vasca in Miami, Moreno continued his studies with the Great Manolete, Farruquito, and Andres Marin, studying Cajon with Manuel Soler. He has worked with distinguished artists such as The Great Manolete, Joaquin Ruiz, Pastora Galvan, El Pecas, Jose Cortes “Pansequito”, Isabel Pantoja, David Bisball, Omayra Amaya, and more. In 2001, he choreographed and performed a collaborative work with his mother Estrella Morena, appearing with the renowned flamenco singer Carmen Linares and the New World Symphony Orchestra at Lincoln Theater in Miami. He has also appeared at the annual Panama Jazz Festival and at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The National Museum of Mexican Art offers a wide range of educational programs for children and families, teens, school groups, and educators. Its art exhibitions, performance arts and educational programs are experienced by more than 130,000 visitors annually, including 58,000 K–12 students. The National Museum of Mexican Art is also a national leader and mentor for cultural institutions and community organizations and advocates “first voice” and cultural equity issues. From building a world-class institution in Chicago’s largely Mexican American neighborhood of Pilsen to creating groundbreaking exhibitions and forming partnerships with institutions in Mexico, the National Museum of Mexican Art has a history of being bold and activist in its approach and reach.
