Approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes with no intermission.

Israel Galván is a genius of gesture, a maverick, known for spellbinding 21st-century flamenco. Famous for his power, precision and brilliantly complicated, fast footwork, Galván stuns, astonishes and leaves you overwhelmed. With deep knowledge of classical flamenco, he invents a new pared-back aesthetic, a new alphabet of the human body. Bessie Award-winning La Edad de Oro strips flamenco to its bare essence, sculpting a form steeped in tradition, yet intoxicated by the moment. Galván is joined by David Lagos (vocalist) and Alfredo Lagos (guitar).

“Daringly innovative ... cunningly contrived yet wholly natural, with none of the clichés of flamenco ... like Astaire, his art is uniquely satisfying. Everything he does ... is vivid, commanding, and prodigiously alert. I think him a marvellous artist.”

Clement Crisp, The Financial Times (London / Londres)
