Ground-breaking star of the flamenco world, the astonishing Patricia Guerrero presents her celebrated show Catedral as part of Dublin Dance Festival 2018.
Winner of the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Performance at Seville’s renowned Bienal de Flamenco in 2016, in Catedral Guerrero transforms the stage into a sacred, spiritually charged space. In this densely atmospheric world of phantoms, light and shadow, a woman battles her demons, raging against the religious and social constraints that paralyse her.
Four dancers, three musicians, two opera singers and one flamenco singer create an explosive interplay of dance and live music. Drawing from the worlds of flamenco, religious singing and lyrical chant, Catedral is a captivating and provocative expression of the traditional flamenco form.
'Patricia Guerrero, a new path to excellence.'
'A masterpiece that makes us dream of everything this woman from Granada can still offer us.'
