This large-format choreography piece that premiered at the Mercat de les Flors now returns after a successful three-year tour. Co-produced by Teatros del Canal and Mercat de les Flors, Gran Bolero is a piece in which 6 dancers from Madrid and 6 from Barcelona dance to Ravel’s famous 1929 score. A dance about tenacity, about the joy of effort and the pleasure of resisting and at the same time about exhaustion. A dance that celebrates time and shared space, the intensity and transience of life. This piece won the MAX Award for Best Dance Performance in 2020.

Jesús Rubio Gamo is an independent dancer and choreographer who has been producing his own creations since 2008. He studied classical ballet, contemporary dance, theatre and literature and has a master’s degree in Choreography from the London Contemporary Dance School (The Place) – for which he received a distinction – amongst other studies. His plays have been put on at festivals such as Chantiers d’Europe, Théâtre de la Ville de Paris; Brandhaarden Festival, International Theatre Amsterdam; Dancenet Sweden or Lima Performing Arts Festival, amongst many others.
