To mark the Cervantes year (2016), Flamenco Dance Company Carmen Cortés endorses the novel by Miguel de Cervantes La Gitanilla to perform it and carry on scene an ambitious production: 22 artists on stage, choreography by Carmen Cortés, music by Gerardo Núñez co-direction and scenic José Maya and Carmen Cortés own.
La Gitanilla premiered at the Festival de Teatro de Almagro with great success.
LA GITANILLA DOSSIER
Carmen Cortés has created a flamenco show with literary roots like the majority of her productions, which have been inspired by poetry and literary narrative. She strives to find that impulse that emerges from her interior to express her most profound flamenco emotion.

Flamenco contains all of the artistic keys to express a human being’s most profound emotions. In this case, these keys are used to tell the story of Yerma, interpreting the text through music, dance and theatre

MUJERES DE LORCA
Lorca’s Women is a recreation of the most important female characters from Federico García Lorca’s body of work. These characters oscillate between acceptance of their destiny and rebellion. García Lorca condenses all of the emotion of a woman’s life into her impulses, dreams and struggles. He explores themes rooted in the most intimate fibers of the female soul. And time and death are inseparable presences that also stir unrest.
