Cancion Gitana


This event has been and gone.

A new Golden Age of the arts flowered in Spain in the late 20th Century as the troubled nation emerged from an horrific Civil War and the 4 decades long brutal dictatorship it had by then endured.

Emerging from the Darkness exposes the sometimes tortured, sometimes joyous Soul of Spain, the insightful poetry, stirring music, spectacular dance and the stunning paintings. It vividly celebrates this more recent cathartic flowering of the Arts that began in the mid 1970s and, as if a time traveller, also re-visits earlier Golden Ages in Iberian cultural history.

International Flamenco dance theatre company Cancion Gitana presents the dance theatre show Emerging from the Darkness created by noted Flamenco dancer and choreographer Helena 'La Leyenda' (Sadlers Wells, BBC TV, Channel 4, BBC Radio etc) from a jointly developed concept with the legendary Flamenco dancer, singer and poetry specialist Rosario Serrano (Ballet Rambert, Duende Flamenco Company, BBC TV, etc).
