GUADALUPE TORRES

 

This “bailaora’s” (flamenco dancer’s) development has been forged by the multitude of projects she has worked on throughout her professional life. Guadalupe began her career with the dance group Compañía Andaluza de Danza and has performed with the most renowned artists flamenco has produced in recent years. María Pagés, Ruben Olmo, El Guito, Manuel Liñan, Marcos Flores, Montse Cortés and Miguel Poveda are just some of the several generations of artists who have chosen to work with her thanks to her versatility, originality and power of performance.

 

She holds several highly prized awards in Spain including Best Choreography for her performance “A miedos, Colores” at the 2007 Madrid contest for Flamenco and Spanish dance and Best Solo Choreography at the same contest in 2010 for “De los Rincones”.

Guadalupe also reached the final in the flamenco discipline at the Cante de Las Minas de la Unión contest in 2010.

In 2007 she showcased her solo performance “De los Rincones” and in 2012 she presented her work “Acuérdate cuando entonces”

“Roble” 2014 is her last creation. The show was premiered at Festival Quijote de París.

 

GUADALUPE TORRES IS ONE OF THE RISING STARS OF THE CURRENT SPANISH FLAMENCO SCENE.

 

IN THE WORDS OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DANCE CRITICS IN SPAIN: “Guadalupe is becoming an artist in the tradition of her predecessors but with new elements too. She dominates the singing with her unequalled figure, which knows how to move, and above all, transmit feeling. Marvellous, pure power, pure technique and pure energy, it is total flamenco movement. A great work of art imbued with the scent of orange blossom and fresh earth.
