Olga Pericet is an icon and reference point for Flamenco and Spanish dance of her generation and is considered one of its modern innovators. Just coming from her win at the Spanish National Dance Prize in 2018, the boundlessly imaginative and creative Olga Pericet brings her gorgeous experiments in flamenco to the London Flamenco Festival once more. Through her combination of theatre and dance, Pericet has constructed a realm for her latest piece that is both as poetic and surreal as its title. The piece is full of imagery evocative of Westerns, funerals and the cosmos.
She uses her total technical mastery to create a balanced and precious style, with great suppleness to her movements on the stage. It is no wonder she was awarded the MAX Prize for best lead dancer in 2015.
