About the teachers:
Torombo Suarez

EL TOROMBO

Francisco José Suarez "El Torombo" grew up in the flamenco community of Seville and started to dance at the age of seven. As a young dancer he performed side by side with Juana Amaya, Belén Maya and with the director Mario Maya in Europe, Asia and America.

Today, he is an important representative of traditional flamenco. His honest, authentic and elementary dance style inspires audiences all over the world.

“El Torombo” – a purist of Gypsy-style dance, unites tradition and his own unique understanding of flamenco. Known for his philosophic approach, he views flamenco as a zen-like practice.

A sought-after performer, he collaborates frequently with other artists such as Farruquito, Manuela Carrasco, La Susi, Tomatito and Potito.

Chloé Brûlé

Chloé Brûlé was born in 1978 in Montreal, Canada. After receiving a degree in classical dance from the Les Grands Ballets Canadiens school, she travelled to Spain to get closer to flamenco, studying under masters such as Manolo Marín, Andrés Marín, Javier Latorre and Rafaela Carrasco, among others. The assimilation of this language led her to work with and join companies such as those of Javier Latorre, “Rinconete y Cortadillo”, Ángeles Gabaldón, “Inmigración”, Israel Galván, “Torero alucinógeno”, and also to work under the direction of Fernando Lima, where she began a project of research and investigation that led her to form a language of her own. 

In 2005 she joined up with the dancer Marco Vargas and the singer Juan José Amador, to create their own show. They´ve been touring more than 20 Spanish and European cities

She continues her creative work with Vargas, performing at several events such as: Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla, Teatro Central of Seville, in the cycle Flamenco Viene del Sur, at the Theatre in the South Festival in Palma del Rio. Has won the Giraldillo Prize for innovation and the prize Escenarios Award Sevilla, Best dramaturgy and Best sound space, besides receiving the prize for most innovative production at the Aragon International Theatre and Dance Festival.

Besides her creative work, Chloé also teaches and has given courses in Spain, Canada, Scotland, Italy and Germany among others, and also collaborates with other artists and projects.
