Games that are sung, songs that are danced, dances that are played. All this is Tela catola… Danza Española, a journey through our dance tradition. Taking popular games as a pretext and under the personal vision of the choreographer Alejandro Molinero, G9Danza stages a show in which hopscotch is danced to the rhythm of tangos, English hide-and-seek is a jotero or the playing of chopsticks is used to play blind man’s buffalo.

The company was initially founded in Madrid on the initiative of eight dancers who, throughout the years of training, shared the desire to create. In February 2013 they created their first choreography En tierra de nadie, a piece of Spanish Dance in which they combine flamenco and stylised dance at the same time. This piece won first prize at the V Certamen Coreográfico Miguel Marchán de Madrid, first prize at the III Coreofest de Posadas (Córdoba), first prize at the II Certamen de Danza Española y Flamenco de Parla, among others.




In this line, they created their first show 9solo9, a composition of five choreographic pieces in which they continue to combine stylised dance and flamenco dance. It premiered at the Teatre Payá in Burriana (Castellón) and has been performed on various national stage circuits and in international theatres such as the Fenice in Venice. They have collaborated with the guitarist Pedro Navarro in his show Homenaje a Paco de Lucía which was on tour until March 2015.

Their second show Tela catola…Danza Española! premiered in 2016 in Alcorcón (Madrid), under the stage direction of Alejandro Molinero and as a result of a project developed entirely at the Centro Danza Canal in Madrid. This proposal has been very well received in Andalusian venues, thus connecting with its fundamental essence.
