«Despite having trained and grown up in several flamenco and Spanish dance companies, for me the best place to see flamenco dancing is in the tablao. That’s where the true artist is seen. Of course in a theater you see the artists, their ability to tell something dancing with the help of lights, choreography, scenery, etc, but for me, if we talk about flamenco dancing, where it really is seen is in the tablao, without rehearsals, without the dancer knowing what the musicians will play, improvising, playing with your material and establishing a dialogue with the rest of the artists who are with you on stage, and with the public. In the tablao we are naked, to put it in some way, you can not cover yourself behind a beautiful choreography, there you have to get the truth out of what you know to do and for me there is the real flamenco dance».
