    So what is Israel Galván up to exactly? I’m not entirely sure that he knows himself, as 'La Curva', his contribution to this year’s Flamenco Festival London presents itself as more o… Continue Reading

  4. Gala Flamenca - Flamenco Festival London - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 26 March 2013Performance 25-27 March 2013

    The glory of the evening, and it was tremendous, was owed to Belén López. In her solo Señora, she offered every rhythmic virtue, every passionate belief and every proud resource of flamenco with a dazzling bravura.

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 26 March 2013Performance 24 March 2013

    And always Galvan the innovator, able to summon new and commanding movement and rhythms from his body, from the air. And, for my money, a visionary, a questing and questioning virtuoso, a marvel of the dance.  

  6. Israel Galván - La Curva - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 26 March 2013Performance 24 March 2013

    Yet, when La Curva works on its own terms, it is a joyous, witty collision of sound and image, made riveting by Galván himself.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 25 March 2013Performance 24 March 2013

    Quiet and far from the fiesta feel of gipsy flamenco, it’s not a riot but it is a revolution.

    Graham Watts, Monday 25 March 2013 — Performance: 20 - 24 March 2013

  12. Farruquito - Abolengo - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Louise Levene, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday 24 March 2013Performance 16 March 2013

    the 30-year-old star’s artistic pedigree is impeccable, but his show Abolengo is an over-processed, over-amplified display of flamenco puro, performed with superb skill but no spontaneity.  

  13. Rocio Molina -Danzaora - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Louise Levene, Sunday Telegraph, Sunday 24 March 2013Performance 19 March 2013

    Microphones are the bane of modern flamenco, but Molina’s final number exploits the technology to create an eerie soundscape of echoes, as if she were sharing the stage with the ghosts of all the dancers whose art she has absorbed – and reinvented.  

  14. Ballet Flamenco Eva Yerbabuena - Ay! - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Jenny Gilbert, Independent, Saturday 23 March 2013Performance 15 & 16 March 2013

    Yerbabuena has travelled a long and winding road to reach this level of artistry, but it’s been worth sticking with her.  

  15. Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia -Metáfora - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 22 March 2013Performance 21 - 23 March 2013

    If the stark black-clad style of much modern flamenco leaves you cold, this is where to get your frou frou on, with some spectacular vintage costumes including frilly bata de cola dresses and enormous fringed shawls, all of which adds to the feel of it being “cultura…
