This is not a flamenco piece. In OneTwoThreeOneTwo, a pair of male dancers use their bodies and their voices to ask, what is flamenco? How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediately communication?

Flamenco is an ancient, but a living form. From the deepest roots of gypsy music to the grand stage productions of today, its power springs from the same fundamental rhythmical sequences: 123 123 12 12 12. The intimacy and audience interaction of the flamenco tablao* generates a complex web of meaning, expression and storytelling – a unique set of rituals and techniques that continue to grow and evolve. OneTwoThreeOneTwo breaks flamenco apart, examining each aspect of its singular magic.

Albert Quesada, trained at P.A.R.T.S (2004-2008) in Brussels, and the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (MTD, 2003-2004), Amsterdam. He organized weekly jams and has taught classes and workshops in different places in Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, India and USA. In 2005 Albert created Solo on Bach & Glenn which has been growing and touring since, and which gave birth to the duet Solos Bach & Gould (2010). This was followed by Trilogy (2011), created with Vera Tussing, an evening of three short pieces exploring musical structures. Albert then expanded into larger, group choreographies with the pieces Ensemble (2012) and Slow Sports (2012). He is currently touring his latest group work Wagner & Ligeti (2014), an examination of our understanding of orchestral music, while also adapting Slow Sports for both young audiences (Slow Sports Kids) and for the street (Slow Sports Outdoors).

Since June 2009 Albert has been dancing with the company ZOO – Thomas Hauert (Accords, You’ve Changed, In Vivo Danse, Mono). He also performs regularly with Benjamin Vandewalle.
