Theatre Flamenco Presents the San Francisco Debuts of Dancers Jesus Carmona and Adela Campallo from Spain in Spring 2017

We are kicking off our 2017 Artist-in-Residence Series with dancer Jesus Carmona from Spain!

Flamenco dancer Jesús Carmona was born in Barcelona, studied Spanish dance and flamenco, began his career as first dancer of the Ballet Nacional de España and worked in the companies of Carmen Cortés, Güito, Rafael Amargo, Canales, La Truco and Nuevo Ballet Español among others.  After winning the Desplante prize for dance in La Unión in 2012, and debuting with his company “Cuna Negra” in the last Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, he has firmly found a place in the new generation of flamenco artists with a lot to say and a lot to dance.

Adela Campallo was born in Seville in 1977 within a family with a strong flamenco tradition, and she debuted as a professional with her family at the young age of nine. The masters of the masters, such as José Galván and Manolo Marín gave her the beginning of her training as a professional dancer. She perfected her art and personal style with artists such as Eva “La Yerbabuena”, Antonio Canales, Javier Barón, Adrián Galia, Manolete and her brother Rafael Campallo. Over the course of her distinguished career, Adela has performed in tablaos and festivals worldwide in Spain, Japan, the U.S., Mexico, South America and throughout Europe. She is regarded as one of the most important artist and figures of contemporary flamenco and she has collaborated and shared the stage with artists such as Francis Brunn (the great German juggler), Farruquito, José Maya, El Torombo and Jairo Barrul. Adela has put her personal imprint and style of dancing in a teaching flamenco collection entitled Ritmo Flamenco Rhythm and she is the former face of the BOSE speaker company. As she makes her San Francisco debut with Theatre Flamenco of San Francisco in the company’s first spring season, she will also teach two days of flamenco dance workshops.
