MARCO DE ANA FEATURING NIMA ARVAND
Bulerias auf der Wiesen (Flamenco)
Bulerias (derived from Spanish, burlar) means “to joke with someone” and is one of the most popular dances and songs in the Fiestas Flamencas of Andalusia. In this spirit, we will approach the aesthetics of flamenco and its most important movements in a playful and humorous way in simple, repetitive sequences. Including a wonderful guitar accompaniment by Nima Arvand.
ARTISTBIO: Marco de Ana
In his scenic work Marco de Ana strikingly combines his deep knowledge of traditional Flamenco with contemporary concepts. This diversity and his challenging of all kinds of arts are the main aspects of Marco’s work as a dancer and choreographer. His personal vision, creativity, the quality and precision of his work led him to collaborate with outstanding artists like Pedro G. Romero and Pepa Gamboa, Israel Galván and his sister Pastora Galván or Rosario Toledo and Joaquín Grilo.
Marco co-performed in Galvanicas (Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla 2002) and since then has worked with Israel as his personal coach and assistant choreographer. He has danced at Spain‘s most famous Tablaos in Seville, Granada, Barcelona, Madrid and Tokyo. The number of scenic works realised for his own dance company, such as Insistencia (2016), Yo vengo de Hungria (2014), Solo-a working process and Paraiso (2013), La flor del poeta, Espacios, Lento (2011), Caminos de la Libertad, Eclipse and Fragmentos (2009/2010) and many more, reflect the creative ambition of this outstanding artist.
Marco de Ana's artistic relation and long-lasting cooperation with Israel Galván has clearly influenced his work. Important theatres and Dance Festivals in Japan, Germany, the United States, Canada, Turkey, Spain and Austria have shown his works. Marco de Ana recorded three Flamenco-Dance DVDs: Herencia Flamenca (Barcelona 2006), Raices del baile flamenco and El baile Flamenco (Sevilla 2004/06).
And last but not least he is known as a magnificent teacher with a long experience in Seville and all over the world.
