Israel Galván - La Edad de Oro - Joyce Theater
175 Eighth Ave. (19th St.) - 212-242-0800
Description: Israel Galván, a winner of Spain's prestigious National Dance Award, opens the Joyce fall season with a sensational solo performance that shows why he has been called the William Forsythe of flamenco. Performing to pulsating live music that drives his lightning fast footwork, Galván embodies a post-modern approach to flamenco that strips the art down to its bare essence and gives it an inspired twist. "He is seductive without trying to be," proclaims The New York Times, "and if this is what new flamenco means, bring it on."
