12th October 2012

Explosive Gypsy Flamenco dancer Jairo Barrull will be performing for the first time in Colchester at the Arts Centre on the 12th October 2012. The show ‘Barrull, A Flamenco Legacy’ reflects Jairo’s unique gypsy flamenco upbringing and his very unique personal style of footwork. A style that was pioneered by his father Ramón Barrull at the end of the 70s and later adopted and extended by Jairo into his own style of flamenco dance.

Jairo Barrull, an internationally successful gypsy flamenco dancer from Seville, Spain has been performing since he was 7 years old. His family are the well-known ‘Los Negros de Ronda’, who’s artistic legacy stems back to the 18th century. Jairo has performed all over the world including a performance at the Vatican for the pope John Paul II when he was just 13 years old. The German press repeatedly declared him ‘The Hope of Dance’ when he performed at the Philharmonic of Berlin. Jairo has appeared on RTVE and starred in the internationally screened flamenco documentary ‘Around the Streets of New York’, when performing on Broadway with a flamenco troupe when he was 15 years old.
