Israel Galván

La Curva

Spain

21-23 Feb 2014

Australian Exclusive/Premiere

 

As a dancer, Israel Galván is touched by the kind of genius that puts him into a category of his own. THE GUARDIAN (UK)

World-renowned for his hypnotic interpretation of traditional flamenco, Israel Galván is a maverick. In La Curva, Galván has united such an awe-inspiring variety of imagery and rhythm that it is hard to believe he is the only dancer on stage.

Drawing inspiration from Parisian flamenco performances of the 1920s, La Curva is an intricate study of the genre, delivered with a seductive avant-garde twist. The traditional elements are there – virtuosic footwork, thumping percussive rhythms and a moody musical accompaniment, but Galván brings something of his own, a full body phenomenon, in a joyous collision of auditory power and experimental movement.

With the exquisite musical accompaniment of pianist Sylvie Courvoisier, percussionist Bobote and vocalist Inés Bacán, La Curva is flamenco like you’ve never seen before.
