Israel Galván (Spain) - Lo Real | Le Réel | The Real

In 2012 Galván performed La Curva in the Stadsschouwburg with great success. Now he returns with his new creation Lo Real. This performance is based on a true story: the persecution of the Roma by the Nazis, and the fascination of the same Nazis for music of the Roma. In her film Tiefland (1942), Leni Riefenstal played a flamenco dancer, joined by Roma from a concentration camp, who later for the greater part were killed in the gas chambers.

Galván battles this unbearable contradiction with dance and music: Anthony and the Johnsons, 'Los Piconeros', from the German film Andalusische Nächte, and The Death Tango by Eduardo Blanco. And of course traditional gypsy music, the origin of flamenco.
