Sadler’s Wells presents the annual Flamenco Festival for 2014. The fortnight of dance celebrates all forms of flamenco, with shows and performances from some of the best dancers in the world.
The season begins with a UK premiere from Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras, one of the most popular flamenco dancers in Spain. Famed for her nimble footwork and her compelling presence on stage, Baras is an expert at conveying the emotion, power and drama of traditional flamenco. Lending a contemporary edge to the show, La Pepa is based on the history of her homeland and features guest artists, seven musicians, and nine dancers.
The other internationally renowned acts include Catalan singers Miguel Poveda and Silvia Perez Cruz, dance star Angel Munoz and his performance of From White to Black and Belen Maya Company’s UK premiere of Trasmin.
Beautifully choreographed and passionately performed, this is an essential experience for flamenco fans and newcomers alike.
