Experiencing this performance is unusually powerful, as the stripped-down honesty and intense proximity pull each audience member right into the middle of the work. It’s astonishing to feel the power of flamenco in this way. This is a dance that traces its roots back centuries and is still evolving today. Its music and movement is iconic, so the way these dancers pull it apart is revelatory.

This is not a flamenco piece.

In OneTwoThreeOneTwo, a pair of male dancers use their bodies and their voices to ask, what is flamenco?How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediate communication?

Flamenco is an ancient, but a living form. From the deepest roots of gypsy music to the grand stage productions of today, its power springs from the same fundamental rhythmical sequences: 123 123 12 12 12. The intimacy and audience interaction of the flamenco tablao generates a complex web of meaning, expression and storytelling - a  unique set of rituals and techniques that continue to grow and evolve.

OneTwoThreeOneTwo breaks flamenco apart, examining each aspect of its singular magic.
