In collaboration with the renowned classical Indian dancer Mavin Khoo, Jose Agudo weaves his Flamenco roots with a unique, contemporary style in this universal and personal story of East meets West.

Performed with an evocative live score, Silk Road is a fascinating exploration of the rituals along nomadic routes, conjuring images of the pilgrims, monks, traders and urban dwellers who 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.
