FLAMENCO – RAÍCES – Rebeca Ortega

Join us for a night of passion, rhythm, and intensity - an unforgettable authentic flamenco performance by Seville's elegant and accomplished dancer, Rebeca Ortega, UK's leading flamenco guitarist Ramón Ruiz, accompanied by the deeply soulful voice of Carlos Lobo also from Seville.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Andalusia, with traditional and modern flamenco artistry.

From the deepest roots of flamenco, this theatrically spun dance show is born from the tradition of flamenco culture, shaped by the luminosity of the alegrías, the depth of the taranto and seguiriya, the rhythms of the tangos and bulerías and the jondura of the soleá and the farruca.

Rebeca Ortega Flamenco Company:

Rebeca Ortega flamenco company has captivated international audiences with the recent production "RAÍCES", finalist in the "Madroño" Young Dance Creators Contest and financed by the Spanish Ministry of  Foreign Affairs and the Madrid network of theaters.

The production has travelled throughout all of Europe, as well as to stages as far away as China, Gabon, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Trinidad and Tobago, offering performances and master classes, and is delighted to come to The Barbican for an unmissable night.

"I am overjoyed at the opportunity to grace the stage of The Barbican Theatre for the very first time, surrounded by the beautiful city of Plymouth where my mother now calls home. I have a feeling that this performance will create memories for all who attend." - Rebeca Ortega

"She has it all: Beauty, a stylised and flexible body, elegance, finesse, charisma, rhythmic sense that prints a way of dancing with its own identity. Rebeca Ortega's dance defines her . . ." - Aquí Madrid

". . . she is the imperious, dancing focal point, her steps beating furious, intricate tattoos under a long train that she swishes, lifts and manoeuvres with marvellous dexterity and no little significance . . ." - Herald Scotland
