“Olga Pericet expresses everything though her superb dancing and magnetic charm.” – El Mundo, España
“Ms. Pericet, a brash flamenco dancer who can take on many personas in a single performance.” – The New York Times
“A tiny powerhouse.” – The New Yorker
Repertorio Español is excited to announce the return of flamenco and Spanish dance to its intimate stage with the return of internationally renowned Olga Pericet. A versatile artist, magnetic dancer and untiring creator, Olga Pericet is one of the emerging names in contemporary Spanish dance. Her respect for tradition is an essential part of her creativity, although she maintains an unconformity of tone and a contemporary vision.
In this new solo concert, Ms. Pericet choreographs and dances to the sorrowful “Seguiriyas,” the exuberant “Bulerías” and melancholic “Alboreá y Romances.” Vocal and guitar solos feature guitarist Antonia Jiménez and singers Manuel Lago and Miguel Lavi.
With this new solo concert, Repertorio proudly continues the tradition of flamenco and Iberian regional dances in the theatre’s intimate setting, reaffirming the company’s standing not just as a theatre company, but as one of the most dynamic Hispanic performing arts institutions in New York City’s cultural landscape.
