Compañía Jesús Carmona

The fast-slicing percussiveness of his feet is brilliant.” -The New York Times

Flamenco from Spain

A dance prodigy from Barcelona, Jesús Carmona has shared the stage with Spain’s most legendary dancers. He was a principal dancer with the prestigious Ballet Nacional de España for three years before creating his own award-winning company. Jesús Carmona and his company of 11 dancers, musicians and vocalists will make their Portland debut with an emotionally charged program, Impetu’s (“bursting with energy”), starring the spellbinding and charismatic Carmona and featuring famed Spanish scores by Albéniz, Riqueni and Escudero.
