Agudo Dance Company – Silk Road, duet

Silk Road is both a universal and personal story of East meets West in the 21st century. In collaboration with the renowned classical Indian dancer Mavin Khoo, Agudo weaves his Flamenco roots with a unique, contemporary style.

Dance Days Chania Performance

Silk Road is a fascinating and vibrant exploration of the rituals along nomadic routes, revealing the lesser-known connection between classical Indianand Flamenco, arriving to a contemporary context. The journey conjures images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers that made their way from China to the Iberian Peninsula. It is a celebration of diverse cultures and dances, as strong and as delicate as silk itself.
