Flamenco is the traditional art form of the Andalusian people. It is intrinsically linked with the culture of this region, and for many flamenco artists it is not only an art form, but a way of life. What's more, it evolved out of the melting pot of cultures and peoples that have lived and thrived in Andalusia, in south of Spain, for millennia. We can trace flamenco's roots to the four corners of the earth, from ancient trade routes to modern shipping lanes. Art, like the artist, is in a constant state of change, and flamenco has absorbed sounds and movements wherever it goes.

Orígenes celebrates the multitude of art forms that fed into the evolution of flamenco. Throughout the show, the six artists (two dancers and four musicians) journey from one continent to the next, exploring ancient art forms and following how different peoples moved through Andalusia, bringing their art with them. The sub-styles of flamenco are called palos, and during the show we see how these palos have grown out of different world cultures; like the Guajiras that originated in Cuba, or the Peteneras which has Sephardic roots. Orígenes has been a journey of discovery for the artists too, leading them to delve deep in search of almost-forgotten knowledge, and to imagine what the cultural life of Andalusia could have been like centuries ago.

Lourdes Fernández and her Flamenco Company welcome you to join us on this epic adventure spanning multiple continents and hundreds of years and discover more about the beautifully rich art which we have come to know as flamenco.
