Olga Pericet (Spain) SOLD OUT

Noche de Flamenco

"Olga Pericet, a petite and tenacious woman who on stage grows with the dance, which one must say is exceptional" El País For years, the specialist and international press have been heaping praise on Olga Pericet’s performances. Journalists from ABC, El Mundo, El Pais, the New York Times and flamenco.com, to name but a few, share the same fascination for this young dancer’s extraordinary dramatic power.

Olga Pericet is steeped in traditional styles, particularly tablaos and peñas. Building on this experience, she has developed something more personal, thanks to her masterful technique and profound knowledge of classical Spanish dance. Her attraction and natural aptitude for theatre make her performances truly unique. Olga Pericet studied with Mathilde Coral and Manolo Marin. She has danced with Rafaela Carrasco’s troupe, as well as in a duo with Belén Maya.

“Olga Pericet is like a flower in full bloom. This artist is sure to write several pages in the history of dance, whether flamenco, classical or contemporary” according to the Diario de Jerez. It is easy to imagine how Olga triumphed at the prestigious Jerez Festival in 2011.
