Flamenco A3 (David Coria, Flavio Rodrigues And Pedro Obregon)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

‘Flamenco A3’ provides a unique opportunity to experience Spanish dance at its finest without having to leave the city. The show kicks off with Flavio on the classic guitar, setting a particularly vivid ambience, and he is soon joined by Pedro, who offers evocative vocals. But nothing surpasses David Coria’s masterful and zealous dance routine, which was figuratively, and to some extent, literally, groundbreaking. The fervour in his pacing, super-human steps was captured also in his eyes and sweaty complexion as he tapped and twirled his way onto the grand finale. Though I did find myself pondering about the prospects of adding a female dancer to the performance, it was, nonetheless, nothing short of spectacular. Olé indeed.

Zoo, 17 – 27 Aug, 7.00pm (8.00pm), £11.00, fpp170.
