BIOGRAPHY

As the son of dancers Joaquín Robles and Carmen Mota, Joaquin was raised in a dance environment. He studied Flamenco with various instructors, being mainly influenced by Raúl Martínez and Antonio Montoya “El Farruco”. He learned Regional Dance from Pedro Azorin and Spanish Dance from his mother, later going on to join her company as a member of the dance team, eventually becoming one of the soloist dancers of the company. Without the ability to hear music (he lost the ability to hear at the age of eight), and through the vibrations transmitted by the floor, Joaquin has danced on stages all over the world without the audience knowing about his hearing problem. As a soloist, he danced at the millenium inauguration gala in Berlin in the presence of then President Helmut Kohl. Following his dancing career, Joaquin decided to dedícate himself fully to choreography, and made his debut with the piece ¨Poeta¨ at the Miss Spain gala in 1999. Since then, his choreographies have been the foundation of the work of Carmen Mota´s dance company, and much of his work has been shown on the TV 1 and Tele 5 television channels. Joaquin also choregraphed the successful show "Fuego!", which has been performed in theatres across Europe, Canada and Asia. Joaquin has shared the stage with artists like The Blue Brothers (James Belushi and Dan Aykroyd), The Beach Boys, Julio and Enrique Iglesias, Mariah Carey, Olivia Newton-John and Paul Anka. Since 1996 he has worked alongside his mother at the Pirámide de Arona auditorium in Tenerife, where he has also created other shows like the musicals "Carmen", "Don Juan", "Urban Romeo", "Esencia de Amor", "Airam" and "Malizia", being responsible for the adapted idea, choreography, set design, lighting design, and stage direction. He currently lives in Madrid with his wife and two daughters. Outside of the dance world, he is a martial arts instructor (Jeet Kune Do) of international prestige.

A Vision ... A Passion

Joaquin Marcelo´s main goal is based on combining maximum quality with the precise rhythm that is required at each moment of the show. Joaquin has vast experience with different types of stages (theatres, night clubs, flamenco venues, the circus, television…..), and adapting to different types of audiences. As a choregrapher, Joaquin uses the most pure flamenco roots as a foundation and combines them with other tendencies like Contemporary and Regional Dance, Jazz (Fosse Style) or urban dances. He supports his choregraphies with meticulous staging and lighting design. As a creator of theme-based musicals, since Joaquin´s primary form of communication is non-verbal, what differentiates him is his ability to make a story perfectly understandable without the use of words, using the language of interpretation and dance as his communication channel. Even though the common theme of his works is Flamenco, he can use any musical genre that best adapts to the moment, for example Opera, Classical Music, Jazz, House, or even Rock n´ Roll.
