“A Palo Seco” [‘Straight Out’] is the name of my first

individual show, in which I take to the stage for the first

time as a performer and choreographer. Through it, I

attempt to embark on a journey of personal soul

searching, in which research and experimentation are

at the foundation used to reformulate my dance,

conceived from the visceral aspects of Spanish dance

and the conceptual aspects of contemporary dance.

Beyond categorisation, it is a genuine and personal

dance. A Palo Seco is the beginning of a journey

towards a personal evolution, always gazing towards

the future but without losing grasp of tradition, in the

arduous search for originality.

This show is derived from the short play entitled A Palo

Seco, a solo performance by me, which won first prize

for Solo Choreography in the XXIII Contest of Spanish

Dance and Flamenco in Madrid July 2014, an award for

best Musical Composition for Spanish Dance, Suma

Flamenco Award 2015, and an Exchange Award for

companies invited to International Contests.
