Lose yourself in the fiesta and fire of the fandango.
¡Fandango! is a masterpiece from a perfect duo, formed by choreographer David Coria and singer David Lagos.
Coria and Lagos converge in a contemporary interpretation of the fandango, a popular and festive musical style from Andalusia with more than 500 years of history. Co-produced with Chaillot Théâtre National de la Dance (Paris), ¡Fandango! takes us on a journey through Spanish history and tradition.
Nine performers transport you to a colourful Andalusian square and a vibrant fiesta. From flamenco to contemporary movement, traditional song to electronic music, ¡Fandango! draws on Iberian folk culture to celebrate a Spain that is liberated and intoxicating.
Coria has collaborated with numerous Spanish dance companies including Compañía Andaluza de Danza, Ballet Nacional de España, Rafaela Carrasco and Rocío Molina. Lagos won four awards at the Biennal of Flamenco in Seville in 2020: the award for the best performance, the best singing, the best guitar accompaniment and the award for young talent for a prominent young dancer.
