Award-winning dancer in powerful intimate show
The power and passion of flamenco comes to Birmingham as dancer Jesús Fernández brings his new production Cádiz to the city for an intimate show.

Jesus Fernandez stars in Flamenco Edition at Birmingham's Elmhurst Dance School


The performance is made even more special that it takes place at the small theatre in Elmhurst School for Dance, in Edgbaston.

Dance fans will only get the chance to see Fernández for two nights on June 20 and June 21 at 8pm in the city.

Cadiz gives an insight into the dancer's personal reflections on his Andalucian roots.

Featuring a nostalgic view of his home town and its walls, the movements will portray an artistic walk through Cádiz and also includes four other artists from the city alongside Jesús.

The show will be intimate, according to organisers


Organisers say the show includes original "captivating" and "powerful" choreography, intensified by Elmhurst theatre's intimate surroundings.

Fernandez started dancing at the age of six and perfected his art by studying with teachers of the 'Amor de Dios'. The award-winning dancer was presented the Desplante Award at the International Festival del Cante de las Minas in 2010, and also won the prize for the best free dance in the national competition organised by the City Flamenco de Cádiz flamenco club and La Perla de Cadiz.

Flamenco Edition '14 is bringing the show to Birmingham and also offering a masterclass.

Under the artistic direction of Ana Garcia, Flamenco Edition is a new creative adventure that commissions, produces and promotes the most authentic flamenco art across the UK.
