Biography

Adriana Bilbao, feel, shout, think, imagine, cry, remember, laugh, tear apart ...

With a curious and restless mind, she has always enriched her formation with work and performances throughout her career. She has a Higher Degree in Dance Pedagogy awarded by the "María de Ávila" Higher Conservatory of Dance in Madrid, a Master's Degree in Performing Arts and a BA in Audiovisual Communication.

After beginning her dance training in Bilbao, she moved to Seville and to Malaga, where she studied with Susana Lupiáñez "La Lupi". She was semifinalist in the XII Andalusian Young Flamenco Contest, in Seville and 2nd Prize in the XVII "Villa de Guillena" Flamenco Contest.

Her dance is defined as the most traditional flamenco, however, her restlessness and interest in renewal allow her to explore and test other codes through elegant and subtle movement, but also impetuous and lively at the same time.

Her constant search and enthusiasm lead her to premiere, in the year 2013 in Bilbao, her first show as a dancer and choreographer, “The fourth step”. Subsequently, “Burdina-Hierro” in 2019, performed in collaboration with the musician and singer-songwriter from “Iparralde” (Basque-French country) Beñat Achiary.

Currently, in addition to continuing to work with the latest work, she is immersed in her next project, which will premiere in 2020, “É C L A T. Fragment detached from a body that explodes”.

She combines the projects with tablaos and company performances at national and international level; among them, in 2016 she has been part of the cast of the show "Flamenco Hoy" by Carlos Saura. Since 2019, she is a component of the immersive theater show based in Madrid, "Tacones Manoli", directed by Felype de Lima and choreographed by Manuel Liñán. She works in tablaos such as Casa Patas, Café de Chinitas, and Torres Bermejas, among others.

One of the main objectives of her works is to promote, from co-creation and interdisciplinary participation, the approach of new audiences to the performing arts. Different forms of awareness are sought in order to promote a social purpose, keeping music and dance as the main vehicle.
