From the Andalusian Mountains to the Court in Madrid, Manuel Liñáns Nómada takes us on a collective journey through the flamenco landscape, reflecting and commenting on every place and every culture along the way. Woven into this ravishing dance tapestry are tanguillos from Cadiz, seguiriyas from Jerez, lively alegrias from Cordoba, and the classic fandango from Huelva. Nómada brings together a cast of six dancers, three singers and two guitarists.
Hugely respected and admired, Liñáns gift is transcendental. He awakens rhythms, images, wildest possibilities of dance, and banishes the predictabilities of sitting in a theater watching carefully staged flamenco. (Financial Times)
Liñán has performed as a solo artist in various companies: Merche Esmeralda, Teresa Nieto and the New Spanish Ballet. He has also been invited on many occasions to choreograph for the Spanish National Ballet, Rafaela Carrasco, Teresa Nieto and the Spanish New Ballet. He has performed across the world in places like Spains prestigious Jerez Festival, where he received the Best Newcomer Dancer Prize.
