Silk Road is a universal and personal story of East meets West in the 21st century. In collaboration with the renowned classical Indian dancer Mavin Khoo, Agudo weaves his Flamenco roots with a unique, contemporary style.
Performed with an evocative live score, Silk Road is a fascinating and vibrant exploration of the rituals along nomadic routes. The journey conjures images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers that made their way from China to the Iberian Peninsula. It is a celebration of diverse cultures and dances, as strong and as delicate as silk itself. Silk Road was inspired by the book The Silk Roads - A New History of the World by Peter Frankopan.
