TraducteurFlamenco, is a very personal thing, you know. It is not born in a company. Everyone defines it in their own way.
JournalistAndrés Marín is used to working alone. And in as near silence as possible. Self-taught, son of a dancing father and a singing mother. he dances instinctively. It is not uncommon for a move to come to him spontaneously before rehearsing it endlessly in front of the mirror, to get the gesture right.
TraducteurI first need to internalize the choreography in order to make it as human as possible. Once I have it in me, I have to forget the technique to refine it.
JournalistIn Seville, in the heart of the District of la Macarena with its small paved streets, the dance school is the creative laboratory of Andrés Marín, it is here that he invites his friends and shares his passion for singing, music and dance.
TraducteurHe is the greatest flamenco dancer, but above all a big fan of singing.
JournalistThe maestro passes on his philosophy of dance to his pupils. Democracy, freedom and loyalty are his key words. A man who refuses to be dictated to and to be subject to the established codes.
TraducteurIt is not a question of yielding to a particular fashion, fundamentally speaking, I very much believe in the essentiality of things. Anything that just depends on the outer coating only ruins the base material. If the gesture is good, there is no need to add anything on top. It is sufficient in itself.
