OWN SHOWS

His extensive career includes 8 shows of his own: Con Savia Nueva, Templaíto, Vengo con abolengo, III en mi Colmao, A mi aire and ¡Ay! flamenco.

It is worth mentioning the last two works with which he has reaped great success. De Alfa a Omega , premiered at the Romea Theater in 2015, where the bailaora surrounded herself with 11 splendid male figures, such as the bailaores Juan de Juan and Cristian Lozano, the cantaores Vicente Gelo, Miguel Lavi and Sebastián Contreras de los Reyes Bastian, the piano of Alfonso Aroca, the guitarist Luis Medina, the flamenco percussion of Javier Rabadán and the Afro-Cuban percussion of Yosney Linares and the palmeros Samuel Raya and Rafael del Moral.

It is a visual account of three great bailaoras, Pastora Imperio, Carmen Amaya and Matilde Coral, with a cuadro behind composed of bailaor El Torombo, guitars of El Perla and Luis Medina and the singing of Miguel Lavi and Sebastián Contreras de Los Reyes, Bastián.

Since 2018, Cynthia has experienced a change in the vision she has of dance and flamenco, although she has by no means abandoned her flamenco spirit and her very racial ways of understanding flamenco. In addition to complementing her dance training with different teachers, she has completed degrees in Journalism and Audiovisual Projects and Entertainment Production.

These facts have allowed him to share with interesting artists from the world of film, theater and music, such as the short film Duende by Manuel Ramos, which has won awards at various film festivals in Europe and in which artists such as actress Rosario Pardo, collaboration in the video clip Lejos de casa, the musician, guitarist and composer, Pedro Medina, etc.. In these years he has centered his place of residence between Seville and Madrid, which has allowed and allows him to work in different tablaos in both cities.

Regarding her professional career as a dancer in other companies, she has worked with Javier Latorre in some projects and as an assistant teacher in the courses he teaches throughout Spain. On the other hand, she continues her work in the Ballet Flamenco de Lo Ferro, but in the last two years she has gone on to co-direct with María Dolores Ros said ballet. And since 2019 in the company of Joaquín Grilo, with whom he currently performs outside Spain. El Grilo is an artist with whom she is very comfortable working, because it is a language very close to how Cynthia understands and feels flamenco.

Since mid 2022, she has been part of Carlos Rodriguez’s company, for whom she feels great appreciation and admiration for his sensitivity and for allowing her to continue growing personally and above all, artistically. She is working on the show Eterno, Homenaje a Pablo Picasso, with the participation of dance figures such as Joaquín de luz, director of the Compañía Nacional de Danza; Sara Calero, dancer and creator of Danza Española, as well as Mayte Bajo and Estela Alonso; Miguel Ángel Berna, creator of a personal style of jota and in flamenco, José Maldonado and the dancer from Malaga La Lupi, for whom Cynthia Cano, besides being part of the company, is her substitute in the second cast.

On the other hand, she is busy, both in research and in the creation of her new project, where she will have the artistic direction of Joaquín Grilo and which will deal with a very current and controversial topic, of which she will soon give news.
