Qadar is a live flamenco music and dance theatre show presented by Flamenco Borealis and featuring Flamenco Borealis and guest artists. This production tells the story of one’s struggle with fate. Elaborate textures of world music and intricate choreographies woven in a rich tale, this work raises questions about the nature of destiny and fate.  It explores the role of friendship in finding strength, purpose and control in life. Qadar is the headliner show of the 2022 Borealis Flamenco festival and it premiers at the Broadway Theatre on April 16, 2022.
