Mi Flamenco presents Echoes

A personal reflection of Spain through Mi Flamenco’s artistic lens. Lose yourself in an immersive, multi-media experience of flamenco sights and sounds.

Following a hugely successful performance here in 2016, Norden Farm welcomes back Mi Flamenco with their evocative new production, Echoes.

Everything we experience leaves an indelible imprint... A trace... An echo.

Blending personal reflections of Spain with the power and poise of flamenco, these skilled dancers and musicians give audiences a very particular vision through Mi Flamenco's artistic lens.

Echoes combines engaging imagery, emotive flamenco dance and soul-stirring music and voice.

Original music by Uri Tal, comprising his virtuoso guitar and the haunting sound of Nick Squires’ cello, alongside the raw vocal power and emotion of singer, Luis Vargas Monge, provide the amazing soundscape for this production.

Add the dance passion and sophisticated strength from Ester Tal and Tomas Arroquero and you have all the necessary ingredients to lose yourself in an immersive experience of flamenco sights and sounds

Echoes is indeed a compelling amalgam of extraordinary artists and emotion.

'Stunning flamenco dancing backed up by hugely talented guitar players and singers' Helen Potter (Docklands Review)

National Theatre Live: The Seagull

by Anton Chekhov, in a version by Anya Reiss

directed by Jamie Lloyd

Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) makes her West End debut in this 21st century retelling of Anton Chekhov’s tale of love and loneliness.

A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside, dreams lie in tatters, hopes are dashed, and hearts broken. With nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.

Following his critically acclaimed five-star production of Cyrano de Bergerac, Jamie Lloyd brings Anya Reiss’ adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s classic play to stage. Filmed live in London’s West End with a cast including Tom Rhys Harries (White Lines), Daniel Monks (The Normal Heart), Sophie Wu (Fresh Meat) and Indira Varma (Game of Thrones).
