Carmen will always be free… she is a gypsy, a Romany, a traveller, an untamed spirit, captivating and elusive, yet earthy and fiercely alive.   

Experience Jose Agudo’s unique palette of Flamenco and contemporary dance in this dramatic adaptation of Prosper Mérimée’s classic novella.

Performed by an incredible cast of seven dancers and set to an original Flamenco infused score, Carmen is a story about individuality, freedom, love and pleasure, and the belief that the journey we call life is always valuable.

Duration: 60 mins

About Agudo Dance Company

Agudo Dance Company, was founded by Artistic Director – Jose Agudo and Creative Producer – Claire Cunningham. With over 40 years combined experience working in the dance sector, the company create ambitious, evocative and thought-provoking dance productions for the international stage. Our vision is to take people on a journey through the senses. We invite spectators and participants alike to be moved in every sense – physical, emotional, and cerebral. In choreography and performance, we connect people to the cathartic experience of dance, where creativity, good health and wellness are the essence of being alive.

The inaugural production ‘Silk Road’ was inspired by the people, dances and rituals along the nomadic silk routes from China to the Iberian Peninsular, and it has toured with live music since 2017 to critical acclaim. In 2019, the company created and performed the opening ceremony for the Davis Cup tennis championships in Madrid, which was televised worldwide.
