Since 2005, Caroline Planté (composer and guitarist) and Mariano Cruceta (artistic director of Cruceta Flamenco) have created a personal and artistic bond and share six stage productions, one short-film and a cd, projects in which they courageously venture to a more open and contemporary flamenco universe with their conceptual and avant-garde propositions.
Both are recognized artists by the critics and were awarded several prizes for their work. They strongly support the evolution and innovation of flamenco trying to be personal in each of their works and creative processes.
Cruceta Flamenco has travelled outside our borders obtaining great success.
