  • “I hesitate to call Ship of Theseus a ‘show’ - I believe it was much more than that.  The performance managed to both reduce flamenco to its essence as well as expand its potential beyond its traditional parameters... Sublime…

  • …One thing that Puerto Flamenco excels at, it is challenging our pre-conceived notions of what flamenco is all about…
    Sheer beauty…

  • The ensemble was made up of two superbly balanced trios. Francesca was joined by two male dancers: Abel Harana, poised, elegant and intense, and Antonio Molina ‘El Choro’, fiery, robust, and equally intense... 
    ...Together they counterbalanced Francesca’s vigorous and poetic dancing beautifully. The other trio was made up of Andrej’s impeccable percussion, Ruben Romero on guitar, and powerful heart-wrenching vocals by Jesus Corbacho…

ISLA

No man is an island...

  • Isla...however, managed to do something not many a performance can achieve: it moved an audience to willingly interact and emotionally engage ... production was brilliant in every sense ...

    The SUNDAY TIMES OF MALTA 2013
  • ISLA was marked by an artistic maturity that takes their work on yet another level...

    The stage and costume deign the opening was superbly effective...

    Puerto Flamenco have yet again brought us a visceral performance full of passion life and commitment. The artists … masters of their form, fully matured into their performances...
    THE TIMES OF MALTA 2013
  • So impressed was the audience, that the final part of the performance...paved the way to a standing ovation.

    roller- coaster ride of emotions ... once again, Puerto Flamenco have proven themselves to be masters of their trade.

ISLA - A commentary on the individualisation of our society at large, the production revolves around the central theme of isla or island. A non-narrative work, ISLA proposes varied interpretations of the island concept, focusing western society’s unyielding efforts to contradict John Donne’s ‘no man is an island’  

Flamenco as a genre is going through its own transformations, the communal and visceral being swept away by the over-intellectualised postmodern irony. Therefore ISLA (island) as an absolved sanctuary, a hidden paradise of abandonment of the self through the communal art process, a life belt of the collective trance of flamenco thrown to a shipwrecking civilization of otherness.
