WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Guitarist, composer, dramatist and producer Paco Pena has expanded the possibilities and changed perceptions of flamenco in a career spanning five decades. His company returns to Sadler's Wells with new show Flamencura, featuring a virtuoso cast of six musicians and three dancers. Art in all its forms has the ability to transport performer and audience to a mysterious level of emotions; a red-hot status capable of immersing the audience into an indescribable experience. In flamenco, this concept is referred to as 'duende'. Performers never talk about it, but are always in pursuit of the inspiration that will allow them to get there, reaching total involvement in the art and deep communion with the audience. This elusive state can be referred to as the core of flamenco - artists will use all the ingredients available to them in order to achieve it. This show combines the pursuit of duende with the cast's experience as performers and interpretation of the flamenco spirit, amounting to a new flamenco experience altogether, creating?Flamencura. UK Premiere. Running time: 2hrs (including one 20min interval)
