“He [Galván] is seductive without trying to be, and if this is what new flamenco means, bring it on.”
– The New York Times
Flamenco virtuoso Israel Galván boldly exposes the heart and soul of flamenco, stripped of all its trappings of costumes, music and theatricality, as he performs only to the rhythms emanating from his body, and eventually in bare feet.
Awarded just about every top flamenco prize possible, Galván is acclaimed as an avant-garde force in flamenco. Yet he is just as strongly supported and bound by its deep traditions. His radical approach, in fact, returns to the essence and purity of the dance form. His intention is to get away from all of flamenco’s clichés, and to take every possible freedom.
In Solo, he opens up a whole new perspective on this centuries-old dance form. His masterful footwork and charismatic stage presence have mesmerized audiences everywhere. Now it’s your chance to get up close and personal with Galván’s flamenco.
Solo makes its Asian premiere and only stop in Asia at da:ns festival.
