FLAMENCO
FLAMENCO
Carmen Cortés has created a flamenco show with literary roots like the majority
of her productions, which have been inspired by poetry and literary narrative.
She strives to find that impulse that emerges from her interior to express her
most profound flamenco emotion.
… dreams chase after human existence.
Dance and flamenco have chased me since I was a child, and when you think
your dreams have finally come true, reality interjects, and you see that we are
only “masters of the void,” as Luis García Montero would say.
Between steps and voices we become the echo of a naked search, we become
the echo of demons or we search for magic, el duende.

THE GARDIAN
CARMEN CORTÉS
Carmen Cortés, born in Barcelona, is currently one
of the most prestigious artists in the Spanish dance
scene, especially in reference to XXI century
flamenco dance. She defines herself primarily as a
flamenco dancer, but she participates in other forms
of creation within dance and theatre through a
continuous pursuit of reinvention and a meeting of
flamenco and other manners of understanding dance.
Her style of dance is ferociously independent and
always in search of innovation. Her dancing is
elegant and sober, strong and fragile, delicately fierce
and very personal with the utmost dedication and
complete surrender.
With 27 productions under her belt, she has
collaborated with some of the most important
directors in Spain: Gerardo Vera (La Celestina and
Salome), Nuria Espert (Yerma), Francisco Suarez
(Falla’s El amor brujo), Fernando Bernués (Lorca’s
Women), and has danced the works of writers such
as Lorca, José Bergamín, Vicente Alexandre, Rafael
Alberti and Oscar Wilde.
