In their first joint appearance in London, Albert Quesada and long-term collaborator Zoltán Vakulya present a work questioning the language of flamenco in OneTwoThreeOneTwo, at the Lilian Baylis Studio on 4 and 5 April 2019.
In this UK premiere, Quesada and Vakulya perform alongside one another, using their bodies and voices to ask: what is flamenco? How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediate communication?
Since its premiere at Charleroi Danses Biennale in 2015, OneTwoThreeOneTwo has toured internationally, taking in the Venice Biennale and the Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis, Paris.
Quesada and Vakulya comment: “Performing at the Lilian Baylis Studio is very exciting for us. We have both performed our own shows in the UK, but never together. After touringOneTwoThreeOneTwo, we are proud and happy to perform in London to share our story.”
As well as supporting new homegrown talent, the Lilian Baylis Studio offers a platform for international distinctive choreographic voices, introducing new artists to Sadler’s Wells in a more intimate setting.
OneTwoThreeOneTwo is at Lilian Baylis Studio 4th and 5th April 2019.
