Two flamenco dancing sensations are bringing a premiere show to the Apex on March 15.

The Jairo Barrull Flamenco Company is presenting the world premiere of El Llanto Se Mueve (The Cry Moves), bringing a healthy dose of Spanish poise and passion.

Flamenco dancers Jairo Burrall and Irene ‘La Sentio’ are joined by a full cast of award-winning gypsy dancers from Seville and Jerez to evoke the essence of the dance style.

A son of Andalucian gypsy family Los Negros de Ronda, or the Del Gastors, Jairo Barrull has been performing professionally since the age of seven and has delighted international audiences.

In 2009 he formed his own flamenco company which has featured in flamenco festivals across the globe.

Of the latest production Jairo said: “El Llanto is the root, the beginning of everything flamenco. It is the mixture of culture, identities, and history.”

The Apex show will be Irene ‘La Sentio’’s UK debut. She has performed throughout Spain and currently resides in Madrid, performing regularly at a number of ‘tablaos’ (flamenco shows).
