"The star attraction was the solo dancing of Areti. A quite stunning spectacle of authentic flamenco music and dance."
John McBeath - The Advertiser
"Areti is an exceptional dancer... Areti is clearly capable of creating a very disciplined team of individuals.... What a great pity the season for this spectacular ensemble had to be so brief."
"... passionate, rapid, rhythmic everything it should be... the precision of the duet between Tomás and Areti was spellbinding!"
Ewart Shaw - State of Play
"The atmosphere was heightend at once by Areti."
"Sinuous, Areti created eloquent dialogue between feet and hands."
Alan Brissenden - Adelaide Review
"Professional dancers really revved up the pace with some serious high energy flamenco that barely gave the audience chance to draw breath - even if they were lucky to do so - never for too long as the dancers grabbed the audience by the heart strings again and again. Don't miss their next show."
David O'Brien, AusDance
"... the audience warmed to the power and passion of this company... an outstanding example of this exacting art form."
"Areti has been treating Adelaide audiences to first rate flamenco song and dance for many years, and Encuentro Flamenco at The Lion Arts Theatre was no exception. To a packed and enthusiastic house, Olé! Olé! came the cries, the beautiful Areti was joined by guest dancers Elena Maya and Tomás Arroqeuro who brought to us the fierce joy and pride of their tradition. Behind every piece was the skilled guitar playing of Werner, staying right with the dancers through every rhythm change and sudden stop as he elaborated on the patterns of their beats."
Celia Brissenden, AusDance
"... sexy and colourful flamenco music and dancing..."
