The flamenco superstar Sara Baras makes a welcome return to London with her latest intoxicating flamenco spectacle, Sombras.
Acclaimed for her charismatic stage presence and floor-pummelling footwork, Baras draws on a dance thread that has woven its way through her career, as she celebrates the 20th anniversary of her company. La Farruca, with its dramatic fast-footwork, is usually reserved for men. Performing alongside six dancers and accompanied by seven musicians, Baras, “a woman who can dance up not just a flamenco storm, but a hurricane” (The Guardian), claims La Farruca as her own.
