Since the creation of our project “MyL” we have embarked on a two year creative process. Together, during this time, we have explored and discovered a way of creating which we felt would be interesting to share. It is for this reason that we decided to create some workshops in which we can offer and provide skills that we have discovered during this time.

In this class we will share the different guidelines that we used when creating. Nurturing a work of creation and investigation in which both languages of movement, Flamenco and Contemporary, are put at risk of leaving their comfort zone: communicating and understanding, putting each one to work, their weaknesses and strengths to one end:

The purpose of the workshop is to reflect within the scene the different proposed goals.

– Position the dancer, contemporary creator and performer within a rythmic, musicality, qualities of movement, concept, aesthetics, organicity within flamenco dance and viveversa.
-Nurture a piece of work and a dialogue of creation and investigation between both dance disciplines, without losing their own identity and, at the same time, respecting the essence of each one.
– Stimulate participants with different creative guidelines to generate their own search when creating their own project.
– To question the place that technique has with respect to the importance of the scene’s objective.


Aimed at anybody interested in the specific search for movement within different dance disciplines and the performing arts which Spanish dance, contemporary dance, Flamenco and theatre all are…. regardless of level.
