Curro de Candela

Curro de Candela Flamenco

Curro de Candela is the latest and youngest representative of the artistic dynasty started by his uncle José Greco, the first major internatio- nal star of Spanish dance and which also inclu- ded Lola Greco, National Dance Award winner and cousin of Curro's father (who alike was a flamenco dancer).

Curro de Candela already knew what it was like to climb on stage before being born; he ex- perienced it while in the womb of his mother Candela, a celebrated and prominent flamen- co artist who released five albums, some of them housed in the Cervantes Library in New York.

His training, coupled with natural abilities, has enabled him to master various disciplines within dance: clas- sical dance, contemporary dance, Afro-Cuban dance, Spanish dance and flamenco.

He began studying flamenco at the legendary Amor de Dios dance school, where great figures such as Joaquín Cortés, Antonio Canales and many others were trained. At just 17 he joined Joaquín Corté's Dance Company. It was here, with the great Cristóbal Reyes and his cousins Antonio and Manuel Reyes, that he laid the foundations for what would become his unique style. From that moment on, Curro continued balan- cing his training with guest appearances in prestigious companies, such as María Juncal and Antonio Reyes, as well as dancing in the best dance halls and tablaos in Madrid.

He expanded his knowledge of classical contemporary and African dance in Cuba, where he was summoned by the famed choreographer René de Cárdenas, who asked him to dance as a guest artist in the show Sonlar. He trained with the company for several months, working on an intricate blend of dance and flamen- co, which the company presented in Madrid for three months. Following this, the company began touring the nation, visiting all the provinces of Cuba, a time that Curro used to further deepen his knowledge under the wings of the main dance companies in Cuba. At this time he gave several masterclasses at the Spanish Ballet of Cuba and for the Litz Alfonso Dance Company.

Soon after, he accepted an invitation from Juan Ramón Lucas to choreograph and set music to the announ- cement of the largest and most important international flamenco festival: El Festival de Las Minas. His parti- cipation brought praise and recognition from both the critics and the public.

When he was 22, Curro decided to create his own show. The first performance, which was solely flamenco, had its successful premiere at the Casino de Aranjuez and shortly after he took it on tour in Italy. At this time he incorporated a Cuban dancer and began adding ground-breaking and innovative elements, the results of which gave birth to Afrogitano (African-Gypsy).

In 2012 he was the producer, artistic director and star of the Impacto 2012 production (New Wine Miami), which brought together 25 of the best contemporary artists from the world of flamenco. He has also been the guest star on international T.V. programmes such as Dancing with the Stars (U.S.A), Our Latin Beauty (produced by Univision) and the Latin Grammy Awards.

Curro is currently busy working on his new production with some of the best artists and creators, all carefully hand-picked for this new artistic concept, which he hopes will set new standards and bring contemporary dance, Afro-Cuban dance and flamenco closer together.

Afrogitano

Afrogitano is a new artistic concept that reflects the Afro-Cuban and Afro-American influences of its creator, Curro de Candela. This is a style that expresses human feelings and emotions, and that creates dialogues through dance and music without ever losing the courage, strength or elegance of flamenco.

Curro de Candela has developed a show that fulfils both the needs of the purest, most heart-brea- king and intimate flamenco and those of mainstream shows, making it vibrant, profound and universal.

Afrogitano follows a seemingly arbitrary thread that is flecked with autobiographical characteristics. Through the portrayal of universal emotions such as loneliness, heartbreak, hopelessness, pain, joy happiness and passion, the show seeks to create a strong sense of affinity between the audience and the people on stage.

With a carefully designed show, Curro de Candela intends to bring the finest flamenco and dance closer to the audience while strengthening the common features that Afro-American and Fla- menco cultures share.

Nineteen people make up the Afrogitano artistic team. Seven dancers, with vast professional ex- perience and recognition within the international world of dance, accompany Curro on stage, inclu- ding Suramy Suárez Maldonado, a dancer who has trained in contemporary and African dance. Renowned guitar player and producer Juan José Suárez Salazar, "Paquete", along with flamenco singer Enrique "El Piculabe", are also big names in the flamenco scene, and together with seven other musicians, charm us with the show's music.

Curro de Candela is a virtuoso dancer/flamenco dancer who has mastered numerous dance discipli- nes (classical, contemporary, Afro-Cuban, Spanish and flamenco). He was trained by Cristóbal Reyes (flamenco master and Joaquín Corté's uncle), by Joaquín Cortés himself, María Magdalena, Merche Esmeralda and Manolete, among others. He broadened his artistic knowledge in Cuba, where he discovered classical Afro-Cuban contemporary ballet. Blessed with enormous physical, expressive, elegant and harmonious power, critics define him as a "stage animal".
