As inheritance of people and culture, the flamenco possesses inside all the sufferings and the enjoyments of the human being. By its various rhythms, its singings and its intonations, it offers then a fabulous way to express the human feelings. Although very codified and heir of a specific culture, the gypsy and Andalusian culture, it have become nevertheless, thanks to its diversity, a powerful universal language allowing to express a wide range of feelings. Melancholy, purity, depth, sadness, but also enjoyment, humor, naughtiness, love, give to flamenco a wealth of vocabulary which can be applied to domains wider than those where culturally and historically it has developed itself.
It is on this idea of flamenco, as vocabulary, language universal, subject to develop other themes that leans the work of the company during its creations. The main thread of the creations is to use the flamenco as language of expression by applying it to new horizons, by confronting it with atmospheres different from those where it comes from but at the same time keeping the foundations and concepts of the dance, the music and the singing of flamenco.
It is this notion of flamenco as applicable vocabulary in any situation which is the base of the work of creation in the company. All the creations remain in essence flamenco shows but by the opening which the creations bring to him, the flamenco in even more intense. It is this confrontation in totally different situations which allow to show the strength and the flexibility of the flamenco to stand out as universal language of expression.
