About Cristina Candela:
Since 2007, I have been working as a flamenco dancer. My experience spans a variety of settings, including tablaos like El Patio Andaluz in Barcelona, and international tours in Malaysia and Singapore with Chalachi. I've contributed to companies such as Maria Carrasco Cia and Apuchelando Cia in multiple roles: dancing, choreographing, and producing.
I've also engaged in fusion projects, notably with Anlage Cia in Granada, and in artistic-educational initiatives. For instance, I served as part of the ambassador group for the "Voices of Tomorrow" project under the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.
My involvement in the arts extends to film. I've acted, danced, and worked in production for several short and independent films.
My interests encompass all aspects of performing and audiovisual arts. I'm as fascinated with the spotlight as I am with behind-the-scenes work. From a young age, I've been driven by a desire to create - to dance, choreograph, design scenographies. My foremost aim is to express my vision of the world as clearly as possible.
To this day, the words of Pina Bausch echo in my mind: "Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost."
About Ricardo Sanchez:

This art form leads him to speak through his instrument expressing emotions without words.

He’s performed in different flamenco festivals and also recorded his guitar music with different famous of several music styles artist such as: Marjorie de Sousa, Juan Gabriel, Mariana Seoane y Susana Harp. Teaching and sharing his knowledge has always been and important key in his flamenco journey, helping others understand and be captivated by the richness of this complex but remarkably stunning art form, flamenco.
