After 3 years of critically acclaimed runs that The New York Times described as a “powerhouse performance,” Flamenco Star Olga Pericet will return to Repertorio Español in October 2018 with her new show “Focal Point”.
Pericet, who premiered “Flamenco Untitled” in 2015 at Repertorio, will return to the 27th Street theatre for three-weeks run from October 3rd to 21st. One of the most accomplished Flamenco dancers on the globe, she has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, New York Magazine, and many more as well as MAX Award winner of the Performing Arts for Best Dancer in 2015 among many others.
Pericet will again be joined by renowned guitarist Antonia Jimenez, unique in that she is one of the few female flamenco guitarists in the industry as well as an extraordinarily accomplished Spanish guitarist in her own right. The show will also include interludes of songs and solos featuring renowned singers Inma “La Carbonera” and Miguel Lavi.
Executive Producer Robert Weber Federico stated: “We are beyond proud to herald the return of Pericet to Repertorio Español. Flamenco dance is one of the cornerstones of the 50-year trajectory of our theatre.”
