Guitarist, composer, dramatist and producer Paco Peña has expanded the possibilities and changed perceptions of flamenco in a career spanning five decades. He returns to Sadler’s Wells with his sell out show Flamencura.

Art in all its forms has the potential of reaching a point of alchemy between interpreter and audience able to transport them into a mysterious level of emotion; a red-hot status capable of immersing the audience into an indescribable experience. In flamenco, this concept is referred to as ‘duende’. Performers never talk about it, but are always in pursuit of the inspiration that will allow them to get there, reaching total involvement in the art and deep communion with the audience. This elusive state can be referred to as the core of flamenco – artists will use all the ingredients available to them in order to achieve it.

Duende, added to a dancer’s experience – everything that has taught them how and what makes that music the way it is, plus the character with which they are displayed, amount to… Flamencura.

Music: live. 3 guitarists including Paco Pena, 2 singers and 1 percussionist. Three dancers.
