Jesus Carmona, choreographer and principal dancer of the National Ballet of Spain for many years, won the National Dance Award 2020 with his latest creation El Salto. Co-produced with Sadlers Wells Theatre in London, the Flamenco Bienal in Seville and the Flamenco Festival, this flamenco show is the result of work developed and deepened during three artistic residencies held between March and July 2019 in New York, Miami, London and Madrid, on the theme of "gender in movement".

"The conception of this show stems from the personal fact that made me question the relationship to masculinity in the 21st century, both from men and women. In the search for answers, I understood in a deeper way every day, what kind of society we live in and what we can do to improve it, because some of the simpler or daily attitudes are perhaps those that need a change. I wanted to stage this personal growth with the thought that art opens the soul to a place of understanding, and with the hope of moving or opening the eyes of the spectator who is more reluctant to the theme that the show suggests."
