Samba Dance Show – FEATHERED and FIERCE at Sydney Fringe Festival | Sep 5-9 2017


Tue 5 Sep 2017 – Sat 9 Sep 2017

HPG Festival Hub Stage One,
225 Euston Rd, Alexandria, Sydney, NSW

Start: 7:30 pm
Duration: 55 minutes

A good dancer trains until they get it right. A great dancer trains until they can’t get it wrong.

Feathered and Fierce gives you a taste of the grit behind the glamour of dance performance. Breaking down the usual guards you’ll see the reality of failure, tenacity and incredible strength that make a moment in the spotlight.

Choreographed and Directed by world champion samba dancer Amy Mills and performed with her award winning company, this is samba and latin dance like you’ve never seen it before.

Eight powerful women push their physical and mental limits without restraint. They won’t hide their work in flashy presentation. In this stripped back space you’ll see the sweat, hear every breath, feel the camaraderie and find the drive that fuels this world-class team.

This is dance at it’s most intimate.

Feathered and Fierce
, an unconventional Latin dance showcase will be premiering this week as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival 2017 from 5 – 9 September 2017 over 5 shows.

A World Champion Samba dancer takes audiences beyond the glamour to the sweat, grit and incredible strength it takes to win in the highly competitive Latin dance world. Feathered and Fierce will feature a soundscape unique to the troupe’s shows: a mix of instrumental Latin rhythms and modern pop music. Feathered and Fierce will be an up-close and personal experience of the world within the world of competitive Latin dance.

OYOBI are purveyors of global ear candy. Based in Sydney and drawing from their diverse heritages, their sets includes afro-latin, house, broken beat, and nuyorica soul inspired gems. This project is a coming together of very talented and gifted musicians with the aim of creating music that is derived from the sounds heard on their tours around the world. Places such as the carnivals of Brazil, the dingy clubs of Lima, Peru, the street festivals of Colombia, and the electronic sounds of beachside Ibiza, Berlin, and underground warehouse parties of Amsterdam. OYOBI brings this rich experience together in one great musical experience that transports you out of the mundane and spits you into the transcendental experience of deep and raw global sounds. Featuring Vincent Sebastian (drum machines, congas, percussion), Adm Ventoura (bass), & Plinedog (synthesisers) plus their usual array of suspicious guests.

QVLN’s signature, modern roots sound is a musical extension of his American, Mexican, and Brazilian heritage.
As a gifted multi-instrumentalist and performer, QVLN (pronounced Q-Violin) expresses his passions for love, life, and dance with his voice, violin and percussion. Overflowing with creative and cultural curiosity, QVLN is on the road about 200 days a year performing at clubs, festivals, and cultural centers–and for people in remote parts of the world that commercial music bypasses. His dedication to bringing live music to often-neglected communities hasn’t gone unnoticed. In 2015, QVLN had the honor of representing the United States as part of the State Department’s American Music Abroad program, in conjunction with long-time collaborator Oveous and a talented group of musicians who reside in Los Angeles.
QVLN is also an accomplished dancer and capoeirista, which explains how he could pull off this one-take music video for the song Run Like The Wind. With a full calendar of shows and musical collaborations slated for release this year, QVLN represents the best of the independent, artistic spirit making him a creative leader on the world stage.
