'The highlights of the evening were the flamenco singing and dancing. Pedro Sanz offered an intense, evocative solo as the Cantor' - VIVIEN SCHWEITZER. New York Times 2008

La Joaquina

some text

Founder member, choreographer and director of Flamenco Express. She has worked with Christina Hoyos, Paco Peña and others in Madrid, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, Toronto, Paris and throughout Europe.

Recent Collaborations ‘Spaces in Between’ 2007 with Athina Valha and Candoco. Principle soloist ‘Splinter In The Flesh’ with the Hellenic National Dance Company at the Athens Megaron

"Leading the dancers, La Joaquina, tiny, urgent and intense, explored a vast emotional vocabulary, and juxtaposed vulnerability and tenderness with violence and aggression. Her feet rattle off tempestuous beats, her sinewy arms snake angrily and her taut body is totally driven by her feelings. Wild and untameable, there is certainly no empty prettiness in her dance.” - Emma Manning. The Stage

Chris Clavo

some text

A founder member and musical director of Flamenco Express, he began playing the guitar at fourteen and studied with flamenco maestros Carlos Heredia, Diego Amaya and Pepe Justicia. He has performed throughout Britain and Europe with Flamenco Express, with flamenco jazz virtuoso Eduardo Niebla and Iraqi pop sensation Jassim.

"Two amazing guitar solos from Chris Clavo and Jesus Alvarez made string instruments sing with impossible precision." - Staffordshire Post.

Reviews:
“This feisty company delivers the finest in flamenco, plus sizzling soloist La Joaquina” - Time Out
“Forget the sterile, regimented flamenco so often served up to tourists: this was the real thing, and to say that it packed a punch is an understatement” -
South Wales Evening Post
“ Delighted the audience, who rewarded them with rapturous applause and encores.“ - Dance Europe
“An unforgettable evening.” - Anglo Spanish Journal
