Calendário Flamenco nas cidades do Brasil

 .

Flamenco Calendar in the Brazilian cities

The Calendar was an unusual way to bring the art of Flamenco to the public. It combined three passions: flamenco, photography and Brazil!
Inspired by the book Sevilla by JR Duran (with photos of Seville Feria), Renata Nunes proposed her students to produce a calendar with pictures of Flamenco´s dancers in the streets of the São Paulo.

First edition: Olé 2013!

To reduce the costs of this project and make it happen, a partnership was signed with talented professionals. 


The bailaoras (Flamenco´s dancer) were photographed in historical places of the city such as the Martinelli Building, “Viaduto do Chá, Patio do Colegio and 15 de Novembro Street. 
 

The result was extremely thought-provoking: It was not just the historical streets of Sãoan Paulo that complimented the traditional flamenco aesthetic but the artistic outcome also gained something from the contemporary side of the city too.

The Calendar was surprising: high quality, aesthetically pleasing and original!

Second edition: Olé 2014!

Following the success of the first edition, Renata Nunes carried on, but with a different approach: crowndfunding. There were more than 100 donations - from Brazil, Belgium, Italy and Spain – and partnerships were formed with 9 companies to make the second edition a reality.


The “Olé 2014” had, as it’s backdrop, some well- known monuments of São Paulo, as the streets of the “Bairro da Liberdade”, MUBE, “Minhocão”, Pinacoteca, Estação da Luz and Praça da Sé.
