Description World-renowned for his hypnotic interpretation of traditional flamenco, Israel Galván is a maverick. In La Curva, Galván has united such an awe-inspiring variety of imagery and rhythm that it is hard to believe he is the only dancer on stage.

Drawing inspiration from Parisian flamenco performances of the 1920s, La Curva is an intricate study of the genre, delivered with a seductive avant-garde twist. The traditional elements are there – virtuosic footwork, thumping percussive rhythms and a moody musical accompaniment, but Galván brings something of his own, a full body phenomenon, in a joy
