“If you only ever see flamenco once in your life, make it this!” - The Independent

Peña's newest show, Flamencura, explores that elusive state at the core of the art of flamenco. Art in all its forms has the potential of creating alchemy between an interpreter and the audience, transporting them into a mysterious level of emotion, a red-hot status capable of making them abandon any concern about who or where they are and just immerse themselves in the experience they cannot describe. In this performance, Peña uses all the ingredients available to him from his musical discipline: modal zones, razor-sharp rhythmic patterns, and spontaneity, to achieve this state between himself and his audiences. Be prepared to enter the “zone.”
