Solera - T1514407213World Premiere. Brand new work featuring both young and mature performers from Paco Peña, 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.

Quimeras - T808348459Human beings, in pursuit of a better life, are inclined to think that beyond the frontier there is a wonderful, promising world. And they may indeed find some succour for their longing; but in the end, very often their dream notion proves to be a chimera, an imagined beautiful reality that turns out to be false, crude and tragic. Flamenco guitarist Paco Pe?a presents a unification of Spanish and African music and dance in Quimeras, a celebration of immigration and shared cultures. The show will try to bring to life the journey of one or several people longing for a better life beyond the frontier, creating situations along the way that reflect good and bad aspects of their dreams, the reality of their lives and the interconnection with the people on the other side of the borders they cross.
