Synopsis

Lola's Fandango by Anna Witte

Lola is a young Spanish girl in awe of her glamorous older sister. However, she discovers her own talent and duende, or spirit, through secret fandango lessons from her father. The text is infused with the rhythms, movements and sounds of the dance and the humanity of Lola's family is beautifully portrayed by Micha Archer's collage-paintings.
