A group of seven male flamenco dancers gather on and around a wooden bench, watching and clapping as one of their number performs, a red ruffled skirt flaring out. They all wear full-length dresses with layers of ruffles, their long black hair parted in the centre and smoothed down.

Innovative choreographer, director and multi-award winning flamenco dancer, Manuel Liñan, returns to Sadler’s Wells with ¡VIVA!, a show that celebrates the vivacious essence of the artform itself, blending speed and technical brilliance with comedy and delicacy.

Challenging the defined roles of male and female forms in flamenco, Liñan seeks to present his own vibrant, joyful and exuberant flamenco that celebrates expression, freedom and being yourself.

In golden light, a man with short dark hair, wearing a long black shirt over a full black skirt, looks upwards, his arms forming a sinuous s-shape: the right arm is twisted elbow up, hand pointing downwards, the left arm is lifted in a curve, the hand pointing upwards.
