House of Flamenka at the Peacock Theatre – Production photos released
Producers of House of Flamenka at the Peacock Theatre have released new production photos of the high-octane dance show. Promising to be bigger, bolder, and sexier than ever, House of Flamenka is now playing at the Peacock Theatre to 28 October 2023. Created and directed by Arlene Phillips (Grease, Guys and Dolls, Strictly Come Dancing), and starring acclaimed flamenco dancer Karen Ruimy (When Jazz Meets Flamenco), House of Flamenka is a fusion of contemporary dance, flamenco, passion, and high drama, and features a mix of contemporary pop, Latin and flamenco music. The show is choreographed by award-winners James Cousins and flamenco master Francisco Hidalgo. Director Arlene Philips said: “I am delighted to announce House of Flamenka is returning to the Peacock Theatre with more sass, more sex, more style and smashing the fourth wall with our dazzling and dynamic flamenco and contemporary dancers, sensational choreographers James and Francisco and of course, our star Karen Ruimy.” Dancer Karen Ruimy said: “I am so delighted that the Peacock Theatre have chosen to invite House of Flamenka back after last year’s season. So much work and passionate vision went into creating what we believe is a fantastic show and to have the chance to share it again with the London and international audiences is amazing! Creatively for me it has been an incredible journey of creating a fusion of flamenco and contemporary dance, mixing in pop and classical flamenco music. I look forward to continuing that journey when we return in October. I’d also like to say working with Arlene has been an absolute pleasure and I learn everyday from her. I am looking forward to revisiting that creative process again in the rehearsal room and expressing this high energy, one-of-a-kind choreography and artistic creation on the Peacock stage!” Hypermasculinity and high camp collide in the sexiest, steamiest evening in London!
