At the start of 2014 Among Friends performed in Doha at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Among Friends provides entertaining, spectacular shows in the most enjoyable way to appreciate Spanish culture, a visual and colourful show with a very powerful dancing art.  In addition to Doha, we also carried out a party in an 18th century bodega in Seville for the Harvard Alumni Workshop, featuring the Flamenco Agency Dance Company. Throughout 2014 we had the opportunity to work with the Carnival Corporation Cruises where we carried out 11 different shows performed by Among Friends. Finally to end the busy year of 2014 we had an outstanding show in the Middle East performed by Miguel Vargas Flamenco Dance Theatre. After weeks of rehearsals we were able to sweep the crowd off their feet. Rhythms with Soul presented a contemporary interpretation of those old melodies and rhythms. Miguel Vargas performed in both traditional and cosmopolitan flamenco. He reincarnated a fusion of cultures, musical styles and dances. This suite fervently explored the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul. This passionate dance style was born in Andalucía about 150 years ago, an art that was born as “song of sorrow” of the Andalusian Gypsies, who had a social political difficult situation. Born in the shadows of an illiterate culture to transmit the love and fear of life, they created that mystery later called “duende” and other intuitions of surrealism. The show was a tribute to that heritage.
