“Restlessness drives the desire for knowledge of the tradition, and this drive leads to constant research of the art”
Renata Nunes started studying classical ballet at the aged 10 in São Paulo, Brazil.
After her first contact with Spanish Dance (Danza Española), Renata fell in love with flamenco and, in 2000, decided to move to Madrid to study at the well known dance school Centro Arte Flamenco e Danza Española Amor de Díos. There she studied for 8 years with teachers such as Ciro, La China, Inmaculada Ortega, La Truco and Maria Juncal. Alongside her studies in Madrid, Renata specialised in Seville with the renowned teachers Eva La Yerbabuena and Rafaela Carrasco.
While living within the Spanish culture for many years and deeply studying the Art of flamenco, Renata also worked as a flamenco dancer, teacher, choreographer and artistic director all over the world, in places such as Brazil (2009-2017), at Festival Internacional Flamenco and other projects where she shared the stage with artists such as La Choni, Inmaculada Ortega, Fernando dela Rua and Yara Castro; Spain (2008/2009/2016/2017); Turkey (2009), at the Festival Flamenco Pera Sanatlar; Belgium (2010); England (2001/ 2010) and Japan (2003).
As a part of her artistic profile, restlessness drives Renata to be an updated professional and therefore she is in constantly studies the body anatomy, dance, theatre and flamenco. Her most recent work was the experimental choreography InmigArte, performed at the Festival Flamenco Arte Reunido, in Zurich (2016), in which the flamenco dance talked with the music of Astor Piazzolla. In paralell, she has been developing a research about Klauss Vianna Technique for Flamenco.
