UK PREMIERE 

Four horses perform live on stage uniting equestrian theatre with art, music and dance as the acclaimed French artist Bartabas returns to Sadler’s Wells, accompanied by contemporary flamenco dancer Andrés Marín.

Inspired by the theatricality of sacred rituals, particularly the ceremonies of the Sevillian Holy Week, Golgota navigates the bodies of its human and animal performers through a dramatic environment of Gregorian chants and physical poetry.

This dialogue between man, animal, dance and the music of Tomás Luis de Victoria confidently demonstrates flamenco’s boundless creative possibilities. This is a rare opportunity to see two virtuoso artists at the height of their powers.
