Carmona, a principal dancer with the Ballet Nacional de España for three years until 2010, has been creating his own shows as well as partnering with other artists, and performing in theatres and festivals in Spain and across the globe. The multi-award-winning dancer/choreographer gave a taste of his talent for fusing flamenco with other dance forms, including ballet, during the Expo performance.

The show is a co-production with Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Seville Flamenco Biennial and the Flamenco Festival.
