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 shine a light in the mystery that unites us.


JESÚS RUBIO GAMO (Madrid, 1982) is an independent dancer and choreographer based in Madrid. After studying ballet, contemporary dance, theatre and literature, 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 Chantiers d’Europe (Théâtre de la Ville-Paris), Dancenet Sweeden, Escena Contemporánea (Madrid), The Greenwich and Docklands International Festival (London), FAEL (Lima), Les Plateaux (La Briquetterie-Paris), Birmingham International Dance Festival, ARC for Dance (Athens), International Theatre Amsterdam, Hay Festival or Romaeuropa Festival. He has been selected to participate in several European projects such as DanceWeb (ImpulsTanz 2010) and Programme Tour of choreographers (developed in 2011 by 5 choreographic centres in France, Germany, Poland, Spain and Ireland).

Jesús was selected two years in a row (2017 and 2018) by the Platform Aerowaves as one of the most relevant 20 young choreographers in Europe.

In 2020 the Spanish National Radio awards him with the Prize OJO CRÍTICO in dance. The jury highlighted “his artisanal approach to dance composition shown in intimate projects as well as in the orchestration of big ensembles in which he manages to balance the choreographic structure with the individuality of his performers.”

One of his last works is GRAN BOLERO, a corproduction with Teatros del Canal and Mercat de les Flors that brings together 6 dancers from Madrid and 6 from Barcelona. This piece was awarded the MAX Prize (Spanish prizes for the performing arts) as Best Dance Production in 2020.
