Seeing the passion in Flamenco

At Sadlers Wells

I have been fortunate recently to be able to attend a variety of performances at the Sadlers Wells Theatre. A natural lover of ballet meant attending a ‘Flamenco Festival London’ performance at the Sadlers Wells Theatre, was totally out of my comfort zone. As my mantra is to learn something new every day, this was an opportunity not to be turned down.

Wow, what an experience. Israel Galván, FLA.Co.Men with musicians and singers performed for 90minutes with such passion, rhythm and skill, it took my breadth away. I felt I was being given a glimpse of Spanish life, emotions, humour and in particular their connection and love of music.   The sounds of Israel’s steps on the stage had long lasting impact.

For me Sadlers Wells has become my Tate Modern of dance and performance in London.
