LUISA PALICIO

Combining ethereal grace and earthy sensuality, Luisa Palicio is lauded for her adventurous expression that grows from her classical roots in flamenco. Described as simultaneously seductive and angelic in movement — and larger-than-life in every aspect of her performances — Palicio’s range knows no bounds.

Born in Málaga in 1984, Luisa Palicio began her dance career at four, studying flamenco, classical ballet, and contemporary dance. Becoming a star on a televised children’s talent show soon after, she continued her flamenco studies with the bata de cola with Milagro Menjibar at the age of 14.

In 2001, she won a flamenco dance contest to study at the Fundación Cristina Heeren. That same year, she won a famous dance award from the Peña la Perla de Cádiz.

Confirming her status as a rising new star to watch, she won the Giraldillo Artista Revelación of the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla in 2006. Palicio then presented her own show in the Festival de Jerez, in the Bienal de Málaga, and in Los Jueves Flamencos de Cajasol the following year.

Palicio won best dancer and was awarded the Miguel Acal Critics Award in 2008, presented a new show with artist Jose Luis Ortiz Nuevo, Cuatro Noches, and then embarked on her career as a soloist, performing throughout Spain and Europe.

In 2014, she presented her solo show titled Sevilla at the Bienal de Flamenco de Sevilla and at the Festival de Jerez, where she won the prize Premio Artista Revelación.

In 2017, she presented “BIZNAGA” at the Bienal de Málaga, which was then presented in Mexico City in 2018.  In 2019, Palicio danced in the Festival de Cante Jondo of la Puebla de Cazalla, the Flamenco Real in the Teatro Real of Madrid, and with the Cervantes Institute in Fez and Ceuta.

In 2020, Palicio presented her new solo show “TEMPUS” at the Festival de Jerez to critical acclaim. The world tour of “TEMPUS” was put on hold due to the pandemic, so it is with added excitement that we welcome Luisa Palacio to our virtual stage with her most recent work. Luisa is currently a flamenco instructor at the Fundación Cristina Heeren.

Cristina Heeren came to Santa Barbara for Flamenco Arts Festival 2004 representing Rafael Campallo and his company in the West Coast premiere of Jovenes Flamencos, with guest artist Ursula Lopez.
