A native of Andalusia, Gil began his choreographic career in Israel, but for the last three years has been creating dance in his native Spain fusing the Israeli Gaga style with folkloric Spanish influences.
The footage showcases the company in the dance studio during a residency at Centro Danza Canal, and in site-specific choreography in the city’s iconic locales including Plaza Mayor, La Latina, and Casa de Velázquez.
