East meets West in Zik’r, the sensational new flamenco show created by, and starring, Karen Ruimy and Killing Joke bassist Youth, which traces flamenco’s journey from India to Spain. With a company of 13 dancers and musicians, Zik’r harnesses the wild intensity of flamenco mixed with a splash of the exotic.
Following sold out UK performances last year, Zik’r now returns reworked and newly expanded. Set alight by spectacular and passionate flamenco, Zik’r is at the Peacock Theatre for five performances only.
“Traces flamenco’s evolution from India to Spain via the Middle East. It’s an intriguing story, with the depth of flamenco’s roots in India brought startlingly to the fore before it turns into the hand-clapping, foot-rapping strut of Andalucia.”
