El amor brujo
One of the greatest models of current flamenco, Israel Galván faces an essential score of Spanish music, El amor brujo by Manuel de Falla. He does it alone, without orchestra, stage or dancing body, focusing on the vibration of the strings of a piano, in the soul of the broken voice of a singer. For Galván, the dance is transformation, and in the Falla teacher he has found the key to transform himself into a pure bailaor.
Innovative within flamenco, he gained recognition by wining the 2005 Dance National Award of the Ministry of Culture and the Golden Medal for Merit in Fine Arts 2012. Israel Galván has collaborated with artists such as Enrique Morente, Sol Picó, Manuela Carrasco, Miguel Poveda or Joan Albert Amargós. He is an associate artist of the Théâtre de la Ville de Paris and Theaters of the Canal in Madrid.
