The art of flamenco takes the RealEl Ballroom of the Royal Theatre becomes a tablao

Cristina Hoyos and Sara Baras are two milestones core of the history of the flamenco dance. The two met yesterday on the tablao Dance Hall of the Royal Theatre, which this season will host the second edition of the cycle "Flamenco Royal", dedicated precisely to the veteran dancer from seville. An image of him presiding over the poster of the cycle, which will take place from 25th October to the 17th of July, with great prominence of the dance, the protagonist of a good part of the thirty evenings that make it up.

Sara Baras was commissioned to embody the tribute to Cristina Hoyos, "fully deserved", said the dancer from cadiz. "I'm happy to be here, your side".

Gades, the best

None of the two danced, but Cristina Hoyos drew in a few minutes his artistic biography. Your first reference, of course, was to Antonio Gades. "It's still the best. He was a choreographer, dancer, dancer, know lights, scenery. There has been no one as complete as him."

With a grace similar to the one that has dancing, Cristina Hoyos recalled his early love for the dance. "I've always had, since she was a child; she danced up to tips in a Seville that was very dark at that time."

he Recalled the dancer, her professional debut, fifteen years ago, in a hall of Seville. "There could be up to sixteen, and the owner of the local told me to enter by the back door so no one told me anything." There, overlooking a ventanuco, I saw the performances of all his teammates when she wasn't on the stage.

New York

With eighteen years old, and from the hand of Manuela Vargas, traveled to New York, where she hosted the World's Fair, and discovered the theatre. Back to Spain, he decided to move to Madrid. Gitanillo de Triana hired for the tablao "El duende"; the was called "la flaquita de Sevilla". There he saw Antonio Gades, who at that time was attempting with the film to recover from the drubbing economic that was his performance of "Don Juan".

"he told Me to continue studying, and that when he returned to form your company I would call. And that made Gades, who also became his artistic partner. Cristina Hoyos was during more than twenty years with Gades, until in 1988 he formed his company.

Theater, dance and flamenco

"I Am happy, because I have many dreams fulfilled. My marriage has been with the theatre, dance and flamenco, and my path to work; to work and fight a lot." Now, he concluded, "I'm still dancing, but things tiny, helping young people who ask me for advice and taking care of my museum flamenco. While the body gives up, I will continue linked to the flamenco and the dance."

And the dance, precisely, is the backbone of this second cycle "Flamenco Royal", which doubles the number of parties -thirty - in the iconic Ballroom at the Theatre Royal, converted into a tablao. What will open and what will close two of the top dancers of today, Marcos Flores and Antonio Channels, respectively.
