REVIEW FROM EDINBURGH FESTIVAL: The final piece, Vivir, is choreographed and performed by Aylin Eleonora. Along with Time and No Time it is the standout performance. Although born in Helsinki, Eleonora has perfected her craft of flamenco dancing by studying in Barcelona, Spain. This is a performance of two halves. In the first, she is dressed in a sumptuous black dress with silver glittery panel inlays. She captivates the audience as she executes the flamenco moves with great expression, fierce feet stomping, and graceful arm movements. The piece builds to a passionate crescendo as she uses a vibrant, bright orange scarf, which she sweeps around her much like a matador. A quick costume change into a white, wedding-like dress is as equally passionate. She wraps the dress around her, creating beautiful folds in the material, accentuating some of the Flamenco moves to finish this display of hugely impressive Spanish dancing. theweereview.com
