Basque music group Oreka TX and dance company Kukai will perform on October 22 and 23 at the ‘Basque cultural festival’, a special event within the framework of the Eduardo Chillida exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset.
Throughout his artistic career, Eduardo Chillida remained deeply connected to the identity of his native Basque region. The weekend festivities invite audiences of all ages to become immersed in an entirely Basque experience, gaining a greater appreciation for this unique corner of the world and its proud heritage. Through traditional music and dance, visitors will be encouraged to create new encounters with important themes central to Chillida’s work.
Throughout the weekend people will enjoy all the distinctive flavours and foods of the Basque Country, including hot and cold ‘pintxos’ (small plates) and traditional outdoor cooking over grills and robatas. A full range of Basque wines will be available to try.
