In 2009 she inaugurated New Delhi’s Cervantes Institute, by performing the show “Sangre Nueva, Jóvenes Flamencos” (New Blood, Young Flamencos). This show was produced by Paco Ortega, and was later performed in Beirut, Amman and Tripoli, and also in Madrid, at well-known theaters such as the Español Theater, Madrid Theater, and Federico García Lorca Theater, amongst others.

Within the Seville Flamenco Bienal Off 2010, she participated in the “Flamencos Anónimos” (Anonymous Flamencos) show series at the Cajasol Theater.
Not only does she teach and perform Flamenco, but she also likes to integrate painting and poetry in her work. This artistic fusion gave birth to the show “Pinceles y Cuerdas” (Brushes and Strings), that includes on one stage different art disciplines such as composed music, painting, poetry, dancing and flamenco. In the same way the show “Viento del Pueblo” (People’s Wind) was born as a tribute to the renowned Spanish poet Miguel Hernández, which was performed for the first time on January 9th 2011 at the Café del Casino in Seville.
Five months later, she traveled to Frankfurt to participate in Spain’s Week organised by the Cervantes Institute, performing again “Sangre Nueva, Jóvenes Flamencos”. This show was performed one more time in Budapest in December 2011.

She is currently working on her last show “Bailaora”, where she comes back to the purity and roots of the Flamenco Palos (flamenco styles), as well as the essence of this art.
