Tapeos - Flamenco Empírico
Friday 15, Saturday 16 & Friday 22 March
Tapeos is a series designed to encourage creativity and risk, an opportunity for young, experimental artists from any style of dance and music to have the chance to be part of the Festival, and perform in the foyer at Sadler?s Wells. To take part anyone can submit their performance on YouTube, and a selection of pieces will then be chosen by Curator Juan Carlos Lérida. The chosen works will be innovative, made for unconventional spaces, and directly inspired by flamenco. Maximum duration 10 minutes. For guidelines and information on how to get involved, visit www.flamencofestival.org.
On the same evenings as the Tapeos, Sadler?s Wells will present a Spanish Food and Wine Festival. Taking inspiration from the Flamenco Festival, audiences will be able to enjoy some of the wonderful food and wine that Spain is famous for. The traditional tapas menu will feature traditional full-flavoured Andalucian dishes that have been expertly matched with Spanish wines. See the menu, and add the Spanish Food and Wine Festival option into your basket when you book for the Flamenco Festival.
