CLAVES UNIDOS and FADO NOSSO
Amália is a unique theatrical collaboration CLAVES UNIDOS and Fado Nosso. Weaving together evocative movement and the soulful longing of beloved melodies of Portugal and Brazil, Amália portrays a bitter-sweet tale of love and loss. The production features original choreography set to live Portuguese fado music by the Richmond quartet Fado Nosso and special musical guests.
Amália, an evening-length production, premiered at Dogtown Dance Theatre Saturday, March 21, 2015 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 5:00 PM. We are currently offering the show to presenters and plan to present this moving performance again.

Fado is a rich, intimate and intensely felt music that originated in Lisbon, Portugal in the 19th Century. Fado, meaning fate or destiny in Portuguese, interprets many sides of life, and may be mournful and melancholic, flirtatious and seductive or wistful and nostalgic. An urban folk genre, Fado is often described as “the Portuguese blues” and is known by many to be bittersweet, with heart-wrenching angst and yearning – what the Portuguese call saudade. Come and experience the soul of Fado.
