The artist Yammel Rodriguez is the only Mexican participating in the acrobatic and cabaret show "Swizzle Club" at the Roundhouse Theater in Camden, north of London, and what she likes the most is interacting with the public during her presentations.

"This is the first time that we start our tour in Europe, though we usually start touring in Australia. Now we are bringing an innovative show to London, something unlike anything people have seen before anywhere in the world," Rodriguez told in an interview with Notimex.

The Mexican, who is currently living in London, participated in the show "La Soirée," which received an award in 2017.

The "Swizzle Club" company combines cabaret, live music, acrobatics and dance with guest artists from New York, Belgium, Australia, and Mexico, among others.

Rodriguez began acting professionally seven years ago, but her love for acrobatics came when she went to a circus in Xalapa, Veracruz.

"Everything started when I saw a group of circus performers in Xalapa, Veracruz, and saw that they were juggling with an unicycle and that caught my attention. Once I returned to Mexico City, my hometown, I started taking air dance and flexibility classes," commented the artist.

In order to perfect her technique, she moved to Canada, where she received formal instruction, leading her to participate on stages in Dubai, Germany, Spain, Australia, New York, Paris, and London.

The show will be presented until August 26 in an old round train house turned into a theater where the musicians Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix used to play at the beginning of their career in the 60s.
