ABOUT MY WORK


My work combines mathematical structures with sensorial intensity. I like to compose formal architectures of the body that allow emotion to burst. I love to explore small variations and details inside repetition, to look at the rhythmic possibilities of simple actions. Dance is an art of the spirit, the best form I know to unveil my secrets; to embody the mystery of these fragments of time and space we all share.


JESÚS RUBIO GAMO (Madrid, 1982) is an independent dancer, choreographer and writer based in Madrid. After studying ballet and contemporary dance and graduating at the Royal School of Dramatic Art, Jesús was awarded with a MAE-AECI grant to develop dance studies in a foreign country. He moved to London where he completed an MA in choreography at London Contemporary Dance School (Distinction). He has also studied an MA in Performative Studies at Museo Nacional de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid. His work has been presented at National and International Festivals (such as Escena Contemporánea, Madrid; Touch Wood, London; FAEL, Lima; Les Plateaux, La Briquetterie-Paris; Tanzfaktur, Cologne; ARC for Dance, Athens or Romaeuropa Festival, Italy), in museums (CA2M – Madrid, Artium – Vitoria, Pablo Serrano – Zaragoza, Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao); at non conventional spaces and in the street. He has been artist in residence in institutions such as La Casa Encendida and Teatros del Canal (Madrid), The Place (London), La Caldera (Barcelona), Auditorio de Tenerife or Dantzagunea and Ballet Biarritz (Aterpean). His last two pieces BOLERO -a short duet to the well-known score by Maurice Ravel, and Now, before we get too old -a solo that was premiered at Festival Danza_MOS Conde Duque in Madrid, have been selected for Aerowaves 2017 and 2018.

Jesús keeps working on the ideas behind his BOLERO to create a longer work for 12 dancers, GRAN BOLERO. This new project is coproduced by Teatros del Canal, Mercat de les flors and Conde Duque. It will be premiered in spring 2019.
