Eduardo Guerrero

Eduardo Guerrero

“Specialized critic said that he is brutal, radical. He dances with fury and from the guts. Naked. An exorcism. But this Flamenco dancer never loses his elegance, the style that is his hallmark.”

Eduardo Guerrero González (Cádiz, 1983) started dancing at Carmen Guerrero's school when he was only six. There he laid the foundations of his dance and kept on working to its development in depth, together with masters of the stature of Mario Maya, Antonio Canales, Manolo Marín, among others.

He studied Spanish Dance at the Conservatory of Dance of Cadiz and later expanded his knowledge of contemporary and classical dance.

From 2002, he began to work with great artists from the national scene who recognised and valued his undoubted quality, his physical capacity and his refined technique, developing leading roles in the Aida Gómez Company, Eva Yerbabuena, Rocío Molina, the National Ballet of Spain, Javier Latorre, Rafael Aguilar...

It was in 2011 when with his own choreography Mayo, he won the first Prize of the Choreographic Contest of Professional Conservatories and it was from then on, that Eduardo began his solo career, creating the following shows:

  • De Dolores, Jerez Festival (2012).
  • Las Minas, Festival de Cante de Las Minas, La Unión (2013).
  • Re-torno, La Abadía Theatre of Madrid (2014).
  • Callejón de los Pecados, Flamenco Biennial, Seville (2014).
  • Desplante, Teatro de la Ciudad, Monterrey, Mexico (2015).
  • Qualitätskontrolle, Amsterdam Der Kappel (2016).
  • Guerrero, Teatro Mayor de Bogotá, Colombia (2017).
  • Faro, tour Faros de España (2017).
  • Sombra Efímera, XX Flamenco Biennial, Seville (2018).
  • Gaditania, tour USA (2018).
  • “Sombra Efímera II”, Teatro de la Maestranza (2019).

A lo largo del año 2020 ha sido la imagen de la nueva colección “A Morte” de la prestigiosa firma Adolfo Domínguez y ha llevado a cabo multitudes de colaboraciones junto con El Museo Nacional del Prado (“Reencuentro”), Madrid Hotel Week (“Flamenco Virtual”) y el Ayuntamiento de Madrid (“De Madrid al cielo en Navidad”).

Actualmente, Eduardo está inmerso en gira con su continua formación, involucrado en su último proyecto, “Debajo de los Pies” el más personal, transgresor y ambicioso de su carrera, que verá la luz en la próxima edición del Festival de Jerez. Este 2021 supone un año lleno de nuevos proyectos que compaginará con sus anteriores creaciones, explorando diferentes conceptos en el mundo de la danza para alejarse de las convenciones fijadas y experimentando nuevas performances dentro de artes plásticas y visuales.

Es el momento de este gran bailaor que con una estética actual, un profundo conocimiento de la esencia del flamenco, su talento, su físico y su gran carisma, conmueve y emociona, triunfando allá donde baila.
