La Edad de Oro (Israel Galván)
Flamenco superstar, Israel Galván, brings his award-winning show La Edad de Oro (The Golden Age) to the Abbey Theatre stage. Both a rebel and a traditionalist, Galván is recognised as a master of contemporary flamenco. Famous for his power, precision and astonishingly complicated and rapid footwork, Galván dances flamenco on the cutting edge.
Bringing both great subtlety and explosive rhythmic movement to his work, Galván is faithful to the spirit of flamenco’s long lineage and history, while smashing stereotypes and preconceptions common to the form. With live music by brothers David Lagos (vocalist) and Alfredo Lagos (guitar), in La Edad de Oro Galván strips flamenco to its bare essence, sculpting a form steeped in tradition, yet intoxicated by the moment.
A genius of gesture, don’t miss one of the world’s great dancers showcasing his innovative and unique talents.
