News: Flamenco at Sadler's Wells

Monday 23 January 2006

Some of the brightest stars of flamenco will be coming to London next month. Sara Baras and José Antonio, Ballet Nacional de España’s Director talk to the press..

Sara Baras is well known for her stylish shows, so suprisingly she says

‘I know a show is supposed to have special costumes, but I’d really like to make a piece with no wardrobe at all, just dance in everyday things…When we rehearse, the dancers all just wear basic jerseys. I like that. Flamenco is inside.’ Sun.Telegraph, 23 Jan

José Antonio talks about the development of flamenco – “It’s really in this past century that flamenco has had its childhood and maturity – it’s been very fast-developing. And even now, it is very fresh and very young.” Telegraph, 22 Jan
