Niño De Elche and Israel Galván

Tokyo

A seeming classical music and dance duo, a deceptively pared-down dialogue… but a form that is above all unexpected and powerful.

Presentation

Fandango cubista, Seguiríyias carbonicas, Sevillanas sentadas… The surrealist titles of the songs that make up this cabaret show, this folie à deux, set the tone. Mellizo doble is a unique and binary proposition, at once classical and contemporary, with one foot in tradition and the other in innovation. Classical, because this duo between a dancer and a singer (and vice versa, depending on the moment) focuses on the energy of two bodies, two voices, two extraordinary presences. Contemporary because this incredible dialogue explodes traditional models. A lively and sharp show without sets or costumes, in which major and innovative artists Israel Galván and Niño de Elche take possession of a space by focusing on the discovery of a new way forward for flamenco. A piece which reminds us that the two men sharing the stage share a desire to escape the lure of pure things.
