This is not a flamenco piece. In OneTwoThreeOneTwo, a pair of male dancers use their bodies and their voices to ask, what is flamenco? How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediately communication? OneTwoThreeOneTwo breaks flamenco apart, examining each aspect of its singular magic.

Albert Quesada  (Spain, 1982), trained at P.A.R.T.S (2004-2008) in Brussels, and the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (MTD, 2003-2004), Amsterdam. Previously he studied Philosophy and Multimedia Engineering in Barcelona. Throughout his studies at P.A.R.T.S he organized weekly jams and has taught classes and workshops in different places in Belgium, France, Austria, Germany, India and USA.
In 2005 Albert created Solo on Bach & Glenn which has been growing and touring since, and which gave birth to the duet Solos Bach & Gould (2010). This was followed by Trilogy (2011), created with Vera Tussing, an evening of three short pieces exploring musical structures. Albert then expanded into larger, group choreographies with the pieces Ensemble (2012) and Slow Sports.(2012). He is currently touring his latest group work Wagner & Ligeti (2014), an examination of our understanding of orchestral music, while also adapting Slow Sports for both young audiences (Slow Sports Kids) and for the street (Slow Sports Outdoors).
Since June 2009 Albert has been dancing with the company ZOO – Thomas Hauert (Accords, You’ve Changed, In Vivo Danse, Mono). He also performs regularly with Benjamin Vandewalle.
His present duet, OneTwoThreeOneTwo is inspired by the world of flamenco.
And it will be followed by a collaboration with the contemporary music composer Octavi Rumbau.
