About the Event

About the Workshop:

Jose’s contemporary class is fast paced and aims to improve stamina through precise and simple movement patterns. The class is strongly influenced by the beautiful rhythms from Flamenco and Kathak traditions bringing them into a contemporary dance context. There is dynamic focus on the concept of ‘attack and release’. This technique allows joints to relax and energy to flow with maximum efficiency. Jose often uses counts to influence the dynamic of the movement and spinning to engage the core. 


Level: Suitable for choreographers, professional and vocational level dancers


About Jose Agudo:

Jose started his career in Andalusia where he began performing as a Flamenco dancer. Slowly the world of contemporary dance became more visible as he worked throughout Europe performing with Charleroi/Danses, Ballet de Marseille, T.R.A.S.H, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and Akram Khan Company.

As a rehearsal director and assistant choreographer Jose has worked on several creations for Akram Khan Company, including DESH, iTMOi, TOROBAKA, Until the Lions, Chotto Desh, London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony, and Sylvie Guillem’s farewell tour Life in Progress.

In 2011, Jose started to study Kathak under Akram’s guidance. Finding many parallels between this training and his early studies of Flamenco, Jose reconnected with his roots and began to explore traditional forms in a contemporary context. As a result he created Silk Road (2017), which is still touring and most recently Carmen, which will tour from 2021.
