Interview Olga Llorente
«For me it was a very significant change of stage the moment I went to Madrid to live, opening my mind and seeing flamenco in a different way: much wider, different styles …
»In my dance I have been influenced by many teachers, trying to have my own personality, but at the same time influencing myself by maestros like Juana Amaya, Antonio Canales, Carmen Amaya, La Chana, among many others.
»For me tablao is where authentic flamenco is lived, the audience that comes to a tablao receives very closely everything a dancer throws off with his or her dance.
For me it is one of the places where I feel better because the communication I have with my colleagues is very close, it is as if we had a conversation in which each one intervenes, contributing with everything he or she has. It is the place where I let all my emotions flow. I always try to keep moving forward and the tablao is the place that gives me the opportunity to continue with my learning ».
