Widely considered a genius of his generation in the world of flamenco, Israel Galván presents the UK premiere of La Fiesta at Sadler’s Wells on Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 April 2019.
Galván spent his childhood staying up late to partake in the “fin de fiesta,” the time after a show when the performers would throw off the restrictions of their roles and improvise together. This has inspired his new production, his most radical work to date.
For La Fiesta, co-produced by Sadler’s Wells, Galván brings together a company of dancers and musicians including Jesús Aguilera, Eloísa Cantón, Emilio Caracafé, Ramón Martínez, Niño de Elche, Alejandro Rojas-Marcos, Alia Sellami and Uchi, encouraging them to cross genre divides in this most flamenco of celebrations.
Israel Galván’s previous performances at Sadler’s Wells include TOROBAKA, a collaboration with Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Akram Khan, and FLA.CO.MEN, his avant-garde production that was presented as part of Sadler’s Wells’ Flamenco Festival in 2017.
La Fiesta is at Sadler’s Wells Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 April 2019.
