Arlene Philips said: “I am delighted to announce House Of Flamenka is returning to the Peacock Theatre with more sass, more sex, more style and smashing the fourth wall with our dazzling and dynamic flamenco and contemporary dancers, sensational choreographers James and Francisco and of course, our star Karen Ruimy”

Karen Ruimy added: “I am so delighted that the Peacock Theatre have chosen to invite House Of Flamenka back after last year’s season. So much work and passionate vision went into creating what we believe is a fantastic show and to have the chance to share it again with the London and international audiences is amazing! Creatively for me it has been an incredible journey of creating a fusion of flamenco and contemporary dance, mixing in pop and classical flamenco music.

“I look forward to continuing that journey when we return in October. I’d also like to say working with Arlene has been an absolute pleasure and I learn everyday from her. I am looking forward to revisiting that creative process again in the rehearsal room and expressing this high energy, one-of-a-kind choreography and artistic creation on the Peacock stage!”
