Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

In collaboration with the renowned classical Indian dancer Mavin Khoo, Jose Agudo weaves his Flamenco roots with a unique, contemporary style.

Performed with an evocative live score, Silk Road is a fascinating exploration of the rituals along nomadic routes, conjuring images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers who made their way from China to the Iberian Peninsula. This entrancing celebration of diverse cultures and dances is as strong and delicate as silk itself.

**** "delicate and fierce"
