Blazing encounter : Israel Galvan from Sevilla, with a solid flamenco dancer reputation acquired over the past 15 years, dances as a duet with Akram Khan, the unquestioned star of Kathak dance, a traditional Indian art that sometimes resembles flamenco.
It is the very first time these two outstanding dancers form a duet. Mixing and confronting two ancestral arts that seem so far apart at first sight was an ambitious bet, but the dancers take up the challenge : putting subtle and full of finesse Kathak from Northern India, and Andalusian, stiff and more manly flamenco face to face.
