Award-winning dance troupe, Flamenco en Rouge, debuted their live performance “Tierras oscuras” at the Cape Breton Miners Museum in October and the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 in November to a flurry of fanfare in the media. Artistic director Martine Durier-Copp invited me to work as the publicist to promote the shows, and we’re simply thrilled with the results.
Halifax Presents’ Mark Robbins wrote a excellent piece titled Flamenco en Rouge pays tribute to minters with Tierras oscuras and Steve MacIntyre’s piece in The East Magazine, Nova Scotia’s Flamenco en Rouge offer up a special tribute left feeling excited. CBC Radio picked up the news and Martine was interviewed by Wendy Bergfeldt live on-air for CBC Mainstreet Cape Breton. The icing on the cake came days before opening night when Ana Almedia, TV host and producer of CTV Morning Live Atlantic, asked Martine to be on to talk about Flamenco en Rouge and “Tierras oscuras”. The segment featured photos, video footage of the dance troupe, and Martine even dressed the part of her flamenco alter-ego to liven up the event.
It’s always exciting to do publicity, but it’s even more exciting when things take off on multiple platforms – digital print, radio, and TV. Flamenco en Rouge delivered no less to their audiences and standing ovations.
