Real Flamenco with the art of Mercedes de Córdoba

Mercedes of Cordoba

Has clear things, a firm will and a spirit that was born to dance. Is Mercedes of Cordoba, the bailaora that the next 3 June will star in the two sessions of the cycle Real Flamenco, to 19.00 and to the 21.00 hours, to show the public that nothing is by chance and that what she does is flamenco, No more.

Winner of the First Prize at the Seville Biennial (2002), Second Prize in Dance at the International Festival of Cante de las Minas (2013) and the First Prize of the National Flamenco Art Contest of Córdoba (2013), among others, are only part of the recognition of an artist whose career begins at the 4 years with her training in Spanish dance, First, and in classical ballet, after.

Her early vocation leads her to participate, to the 6, in the movie Montoyas and Tarantos; the following year he joined Manuel Morao's company, and with only 11 years ago he debuted at the Lyon Biennale, with Javier Latorre and Eva Yerbabuena. Then the Andalusian Ballet would come, directed by José Antonio, with which he was part of the artistic team of the opera Life Brief, Manuel de Falla, that inaugurated the Teatro Real in 1997.

Mercedes de Córdoba dominates all the suits, with extraordinary technique and innate naturalness, with powerful and expressive presence, able to communicate and excite the public through his elegant dance and flamenco, both in her career as a dancer in the most important companies, like performing his own choreographies in front of his company.

The show he now presents at the Teatro Real, No more, reflects his passion for flamenco, without other explanation; the sign of the fight, the dedication and unconditional love for the art that has marked his life, that makes her sick and that cures her. On the Flamenco Real stage she will be accompanied by Enrique “The Extremeño”, as a guest artist in cante; Juan Campallo, to the guitar; Jesús Corbacho, singing and Paco Vega, on percussion.
