Farruquito and Riqueni at the Paris Flamenco Art Biennial

The fifth edition of Paris’ prestigious Flamenco Art Biennial is to be celebrated between the 3rd and 18th February 2022 at the Chaillot National Theatre, and will include artists like Paula Comitre, Rafaela Carrasco, David Coria or Farruquito, amongst others.

The eagerly awaited fifth edition of the Paris Flamenco Art Biennial is returning following its success in 2020. Twinned with the Seville Biennial, it is one of the most important jondo art events to take place outside of Spain. Every two years Paris organises the festival which cultivates an eclecticism and spirit of discovery, bringing together fans, enthusiasts and those simply intrigued by great performances.

 

This new edition will cleverly include a mixture of stars, such as key flamenco leaders from experimental branches. For example Paula Comitre and Florencia Oz, who are juxtaposed by illustrious performers of the purest dance and toque.

 

From 3rd-18th February 2022, the National Theatre of Chaillot will be dressed up ready to receive fans of flamenco and a handful of huge artists. Names found in the programme include Rafael Riqueni, Farruquito, Paula Comitre herself, Rafaela Carrasco, David Coria, Jann Gallois and Florencia Oz – an impressive line-up. Exhibitions about the flamenco world will also be displayed at the event.

 

Paris’ 5th Flamenco Art Biennial Programme

 

3rd – 6th February 2022

Ariadna, Rafaela Carrasco

Théâtre National de Chaillot

Rafaela Carrasco is surrounded by eight dancers, singers and guitarists to take us on a flamenco journey in the form of a Greek tragedy. An introspection into the heart of the labyrinth of our deepest fears.

 

4th-6th February 2022

Alegoría, Paula Comitre

Théâtre National de Chaillot

At only 27 years of age, Paula Comitre – bright and fiery – is flamenco’s new rising star. She presents Alegoría, her second creation.

 

10th–12th February 2022

Antípodas, Florencia Oz

Théâtre National de Chaillot

The Peruvian author Julio Ramón Ribeyro wrote that we all have a doppelgänger living on the opposite side of the globe. The reunion of twins Florencia (dancer) and Isidora (musician) promises an intimate performance.

 

11th-13th February 2022

Imperfecto, David Coria/Jann Gallois

Théâtre National de Chaillot

On the one hand, Jann Gallois from the world of hip hop, and on the other, David Coria, from that of flamenco. Together they break down the boundaries of dance and fuse their disciplines.

 

16th-18th February 2022

Farruquito

Théâtre National de Chaillot

The dancer Farruquito and his six musicians tell, in an intimate atmosphere, the origins and history of flamenco. Dance in its purest form.

 

16th-18th February 2022

Neria, Rafael Riqueni

Théâtre National de Chaillot

Following Suite Sevilla and Parque de María Luisa, the musical tale of Neria will bring guitarist Rafael Riqueni’s Andalusian musical trilogy to a close.

 

16th-18th February 2022

Humano, David Coria

Théâtre National de Chaillot

Following the success of ¡Fandango! (a duet with singer David Lagos presented at the last Flamenco Art Biennial) and Imperfecto (a new creation in which his flamenco footsteps intertwined with Jann Gallois’ hip hop), David Coria offers you his performance, Humano.
