A new alter ego is formed when two flamenco masters discover each other through dance.
Developed from a series of improvisations in the studio, virtuoso performers Patricia Guerrero and Alfonso Losa throw away the rule book to explore personal connection.
Guerrero draws geometric figures with her dance. She dismantles her movements and recreates them anew. Losa develops new schemes without breaking the mould, builds without deconstructing, and stays true to his roots.
Alter Ego is flamenco stripped bare. It is pure passion, visceral movement and unfettered exploration.

Image description: Five people on a black stage with a black backdrop. Three are sitting on chairs, two facing the camera and one with their back turned. They are clapping. The two performers at the front of the image are dancing. The male figure wears a grey suit and has his arms above his head in a strong pose. The female figure is wearing a lilac dress with lots of frills. She is facing away from the camera, has her arms above her head and is doing a backbend so we can see part of her face.
Young, bold, and beautiful, Guerrero is the kind of flamenco artist who can honor the past while appearing of the present

Her dance style is entirely nonconformist, yet her technique is pristine.
