Duo show description:
"Charisma, sensuality, passion, rythme and elegance are their major qualities; straight from Sevilla, dancer, Rebeca Ortega together with guitarist and singer, Martín Revuelo Jr. bring us their fresh Flamenco; simple, old, innovative, performative and comical.
The show makes you dream and feel involved, Rebeca and Martín take you on a train journey through the palos of flamenco interpreting the colours, airs, grace and rythme of alegrías, tangos and bulerías, with giving no little significance to the seriousness of the rooted, painful, venenous hondo flamenco."
