01 Jul Olga Pericet
Versatile artist, magnetic dancer and untiring creator, Olga Pericet is one of the indispensable names in the present spanish dance. her respect for tradition is an essencial part of her creativity, although she maintains that the dialogue with our classic dance also has an uncorformist tone and a comtemporary vision. olga pericet exhales art even in the most subtle of her movements and her indomitable personality traps the audience from the very first instant she appears on the stage.Rosalía Gómez
