Paco Peña’s Flamencura returns to Sadler’s Wells

First Published 16 June 2017, Last Updated 27 October 2017

Acclaimed flamenco guitarist, composer, dramatist and producer Paco Peña returns to Sadler’s Wells with his company to present Flamencura this summer, playing from Tuesday 8 – Saturday 12 August 2017.

Flamencura originally received its UK premiere at Sadler’s Wells in June 2015, garnering five star reviews. It presents ten dance pieces, a combination of solos, duets, ensembles and musical numbers, ranging from choreographies inspired by the Spanish folk traditions that give origin to the art of flamenco, to cutting-edge contemporary takes on flamenco.

The production reconnects with flamenco’s roots, stripping away theatricality and narrative, and providing a raw platform for the company’s artists to present and express their most quintessential emotions. The show features choreography by the award-winning Fernando Romero.

Paco Peña said: “In preparing Flamencura, I wanted to return to the essential core that, not only made flamenco the vehicle through which Andalusian people expressed their history, their feelings and the essential emotions that their lives contain, but that has also underpinned the development of this form of music and dance into a truly universal art that touches audiences.”

Over a career spanning more than four decades, Paco Peña has expanded the possibilities of flamenco and changed perceptions of the art form, bringing originality and energy to flamenco performance by mining the richness of its traditions while being inspired by contemporary culture.
