“. . . she is the imperious, dancing focal point, her steps beating furious, intricate tattoos under a long train that she swishes, lifts and manoeuvres with marvellous dexterity and no little significance . . .” – Herald Scotland

“She has it all: Beauty, a stylised and flexible body, elegance, finesse, charisma, rhythmic sense that prints a way of dancing with its own identity. Rebeca Ortega’s dance defines her . . .” – Aquí Madrid

Rebeca has trained extensively in flamenco, classical Spanish dance, ballet, and contemporary dance in prestigious dance schools such as the Professional Conservatory of Dance, Seville, or the most recognised flamenco schools, Madrid’s Amor de Dios and Seville’s Flamenco Danza.

She is flying in from Seville to perform for us her latest show, Azahar, preceded by dance and guitar workshops.

From the deepest roots of flamenco comes Rebeca’s theatrically spun dance show, shaped by the luminosity of alegrías, the depth of Taranto, the rhythms of tangos and bulerías, and the jondura of the farruca and soleá.

The transit of society generates changes in both the thought and consciousness of 21st-century woman. Liberation seeks to emerge from old social and personal ties.

On stage, the cantaora intermingles the lyrics, representing the voices of the bailaora’s conscience: one expressing victimisation and melancholy, the other the power to overcome and show courage.

This outstanding and highly acclaimed show follows a woman’s path, flourishing from the regret of the past towards an uncertain and graceful future.

Full of pathos and passion, Rebecca toured this production throughout the UK to great acclaim in 2023.
