Juan Carlos Otero , Keir cooper
& LOLA RUEDA WITH EMMA FRANKLAND
In a fusion of anarchic theatre and dance,
a flamenco dancer, a guitarist and a stripper
reclaim the forgotten history of events preceding
the Spanish Civil War.
With the rise in opposition between anti-austerity
and far-right movements all over Europe and the UK, REPUBLICA is a timely examination of the last time a government dared to take power from the super-rich to distribute it equally amongst its people.
The music from this piece will also exist in this year's BODIES project - the collaboration of
guitar & dance.
