ISRAEL GALVÁN, SADLER´S WELLS *****
Heaven, in its infinite wisdom, knows what was going on. There was Galván, lean electric, prodigious, the incarnatoin of movement-ideas which he pulls from the air. Galván, the Paganini of flamenco, took his art on a helter-skelter exploration of his (and its) identity in La Curva. Dance percussive, dance as battle with self, dance (like Nijinksy in his last piteous recital in St Moritz, when he sought God) as salvation... a visionary, a questing and questioning virtuoso, a marvel of the dance.
