Compañía Eva Yerbabuena “Yerbagüena” (Bright Dark)

7 Jun - 8 Jun

Compañía Eva Yerbabuena

Yerbagüena (Bright Dark)

07-08 June | Sadler’s Wells Theatre | London

I have always maintained it’s not important that people should understand; for me it’s enough that people should feel
Eva Yerbabuena

In Yerbagüena, Eva Yerbabuena takes to the stage to reflect on her 20-year career, with her musical director, guitarist and husband, Paco Jarana, as well as two singers and two percussionists.

Her career has included an invitation from Pina Bausch to perform at the Tanztheater Wuppertal 25th anniversary festival, choreographing Mi Niña Manuela for the Ballet Nacional de España, and worked with film director Mike Figgis, for the documentary Flamenco Women. She has previously collaborated with Manolete, Merche Esmeralda, Javier Latorre, Joaquín Cortés, and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Yerbabuena is known for exploring the tension between traditional and nuevo flamenco, and most famously for her interpretations of the soleá – the dance of solitude.

A modern simplicity that reaches to the heart of flamenco and makes it burn.
A terrific flamenco performer, her form and footwork both precise and nuanced.
She exposes a beauty in flamenco I doubt any had believed could exist.
