About the Show/Event
Information for Paco Pena - Solera at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). World Premiere. Brand new work featuring both young and mature performers from Paco PeÃ±a, Solera demonstrates that age is undoubtedly the most essential element in any artform. Andalucia, in Southern Spain, has for many lifetimes produced fine wines in a system that stacks oak barrels in several layers. Young wine enters the highest barrel and given time flows down, nurturing its best qualities, until what remains is a delicious wine that can only be achieved with age. The mature solera of the older generations enriches and refines the best qualities handed down to the young. Flamenco is not a written tradition but one handed down from one generation to the next, constantly striving to find different ways to express; the best of performances will incorporate part of what has been created before by the great practitioners of the past.
