As part of the tenth anniversary celebrations, the London Flamenco Festival extends into the Lilian Baylis Studio with new experimental work by emerging contemporary artists.
Two of flamenco’s brightest stars present a sharing of their research produced at Sadler’s Wells in the first week of the Flamenco Festival.
Olga Pericet will be working with designer Holly Waddington alongside a musician and choreographer Juan Carlos Lérida, for her sharing on Saturday 23 March. Olga Pericet is one of the most versatile flamenco dancers today, having worked as both a performer and a choreographer.
New Wave Associate Rocío Molina will work with video artist Yoav Segal and two renowned hip hop artists, Sébastien Ramirez and Honji, with the results presented on Sunday 24 March. Already performing at the festival earlier in the week, Rocío Molina is at the forefront of modern flamenco and has been awarded many of Spain’s top accolades, including National Dancer of the Year in 2010.
Each event will last approx 30–40 minutes, meaning audiences can come along prior to main house shows.
