Cositas Flamencas presents Suena Flamenco

Supported by, flamenco singer, Olayo Jiménez is in town and performing nationally.

His Melbourne performance takes place on the 23rd and 24th of September at 8pm at the Phoenix Theatre in Elwood, appearing as a special guest artist with the Sydney based company “Cositas Flamencas”.

“You will enjoy every performer on this bill,
each one deserves star billing!”

Olayo Jimenez comes to us direct from Spain and from a long line of gypsy flamenco singers and dancers. His grandmother “La Milia” was a flamenco singer and friend of the great Carmen Amaya. Olayo studied in Sevilla with the teachers Naranjito de Triana and Jose de la Tomasa and learned to dance in the Madrid flamenco school “Amor de Dios.” He has worked with Paco Peña, Joaquin Gril, Diego El Cigala, Dorantes, Juan Carmona, Cantores de Hispalis, Juan Polvillo, Pepa Molina, Malena de Jerez, Mateo Solea and Lucia Alvarez “La Pinona.”

Cositas Flamencas – literally meaning ‘little flamenco things’, was established in 2009 and is an artistic collaboration between Sydney flamenco artists – Ana Otero, Daniela Gillis and Tomás Dietz. Cositas Flamencas are bringing their new production to Melbourne this September!

The Cositas Flamencas show, “Suena Flamenco” (sounds like flamenco) stars:

  • Tomás Arroquero (dance)
  • Ana Otero (dance)
  • Daniela Gillis (dance)
  • Laura Uhe (dance)
  • Kieren Ray (guitar)
  • Olayo Jiménez (singer)

2009 show with Olayo Jiménez


Sparks will definitely be flying when Kieren’s dynamic flamenco rhythms meet the shotgun footwork of four disciplined dancers inspired by the powerful cante of Olayo Jiménez.

This is a massive line up of talent Melbourne!!!
It is rare that we get to see so much talent on the one bill and the added bonus of seeing the talent on the professional, but intimate stage of the Pheonix Theatre.
