The tremendous Sevillian flamenco renovator needs no introductions! His universal and contemporary pieces - where the audience is set on fire by his absolute “compás” or by his space squeezing “zapateados” -, are acclaimed all over the world. Meanwhile, his pure solo pieces are rarer.

For Circus Romanès, Israel Galván will name his solo “La Gatomaquia o Israel Galván bailando para cuatro gatos”. El gato: the cat. La Gatomaquia: The Battle of the Cats or a burlesque Lope de Vega masterpiece. In popular Spanish, “four cats” refers to just a handful of people, in other words, finding yourself alone. At Circus Romanès, there have never been any other animals than the family cats on the ring… Israel Galván performs the riddle of an overwhelming solitude.
