HOUSE OF FLAMENKA, A Brand New West End Dance Spectacular, Comes to the Peacock Theatre in September

House of Flamenka, a brand new West End dance spectacular, co-created and directed by dance legend Arlene Phillips, is a lavish, extravagant and sexy fusion of Flamenco and Contemporary dance.

Set in a fantasy world in the home of a goddess of music and dance whose passion is collecting beautiful objects, her most prized possessions being 20 extraordinary dancers and musicians, who perform solely for her pleasure.

With an eclectic soundtrack, the show is a passionate fusion of very distinctive forms, full of explosive choreography both Flamenco and contemporary.

Flamenco star Karen Ruimy leads an exceptional company of dancers from Madrid and the UK.
