Our work has been presented in festivals in the UK, Spain, Finland, France, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Venezuela and Colombia.
The short film La danza de los pinceles was awarded second prize in the Flamenco Short Film Festival in Madrid (FFLAC 2010).
Our filmpoems In silence and Libro de huellas (featuring Spanish poet Ángel Guinda) have been shown in the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival, Berlin and in Liberated Words, Bristol.
We are currently collaborating with the Amsterdam based La Compañía Parpadeo creating visuals for The Parpadeo Project, which fuses traditional flamenco with contemporary dance as well as electronic, neo-classical and ambient music and poetry.
