Presented on Sunday March 30th, at 7:30 p.m., Israel Galván has been called a “revolutionary,” a “maverick”, and simply “a genius.” Known for complex and rapid-fire footwork punctuated by moments of stillness and silence, Galván dances flamenco on the cutting edge. He virtually stuns, astonishes and leaves you overwhelmed. Combining a deep knowledge of classical flamenco with aesthetic avant-garde, punctuated by singularly inventive and precise gestures, La Edad de Oro is the most eloquent example of his natural gift, his mastery of the duende. A magical and mesmerizing work that brilliantly tips the golden age of flamenco into the XXI century.
“Brilliantly inventive avant-garde performer Israel Galván takes flamenco to a whole new level.” Time Out London
Daringly innovative … cunningly contrived yet wholly natural, with none of the clichés of flamenco… like Astaire, his art is uniquely satisfying. Everything he does … is vivid, commanding, and prodigiously alert. I think him a marvellous artist.
Clement Crisp, The Financial Times, London
