Flamenco is said to be music, sex and history all rolled into one, the fiercest expression of the human spirit ever devised. Flamenco Express represents the purest flamenco available, from the widest range of new talent.
The Flamenco Express policy for the last 16 years has been simply to give the most interesting flamenco artists total artistic freedom and put them on stage. The result is an amazing diversity of artistic voices all committed to delivering their own view of the world, in their own way and according to how they feel at the time, which means that every show is different and special.
The Flamenco Express line-up in the past two breathtaking years has featured a profusion of eye-popping young talent in Jesus Olmedo, Javier Macías, Magdalena Mannion, Melisa Calero, Natalia García-Huidobro, Jorge Muelas, Yinka Esi Graves, Delara Tiv, Paula Gomez-Quintana and Demi Garcia, plus the historic vocal presence of maestro Manuel de la Malena and the choreographic fire of international masters Jose Merino and Titi Flores.
The company's flamenco exploration of the rhythmic origins of art and science, Iron In the Soul, was featured as the climax of the Cultural Olympiad project BigDance 2012 and is in rehearsal for future productions.
“What was surprising, however, was the sheer power and energy displayed by the dancers during this vibrant celebration of Spanish culture. Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement” South Wales Evening Post
“Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores” Dance Europe
“Utterly riveting variations of firecracker beats… tumultuous fervour… indelible gracefulness” The Stage
“An unforgettable evening” Anglo Spanish Journal
“Flamenco Express transported the audience to an imaginary Spanish haven during a musical journey laced with passion, grace and immense artistry” Harlow Star
