¡Kick-Pluck-Planta-Tacón -Tap-Clap-Clack !

Slagwerk Den Haag & Eduardo Guerrero

Drumming feet, clapping hands, clicking fingers, clattering castanets, brilliantly timed olés: no art form is more percussive than flamenco. Renowned Dutch percussion group Slagwerk Den Haag and phenomenal dancer and rhythm box Eduardo Guerrero challenge each other in a thrilling percussive “battle”.  In this new Flamenco Biënnale NL festival creation ‘the upcoming new Flamenco God’ Guerrero’ employs body and feet as percussion instruments in a landscape he has never entered before. The traditional “zapateado”, the flamenco feet rhythms, and the “pure flamenco body” acquire a whole new meaning. The rich, driving flamenco rhythms rattle in every possible way in joyful interaction with the six percussionists of Slagwerk Den Haag. A simple table is transformed into a percussion instrument, a “cajon” (hand drum) gets an electronic upgrade and live castanets take on a computerized castanet orchestra! Man versus machine, emotion versus rhythm.
