Flamenco Queer was born in October 2019 as a result of the work of London-born guitarist Jero Férec and dancer Rubén Heras from Badalona.
Rubén and Jero explore traditional flamenco using identity and inclusion as their starting point.
Inspired by the confluence of queer and minority communities with flamenco and drag that took place in the Raval and Poble-Sec districts of Barcelona in the early 1900s, Flamenco Queer offers a dynamic and aesthetically unique show experience, highlighting the importance of intersectional representation both on and off-stage, giving visibility to the presence and contributions of queer artists in both historical and contemporary flamenco culture.
Rubén began dancing at a young age in a local school in his neighbourhood of La Salut (Badalona). He went on to study Spanish Dance at the Institut del Teatre (Barcelona) and Amor de Dios (Madrid). He has studied with artists such as Kira Purcalla, Belen Cabanes, Belen López, Concha Jareño, José Maldonado, Rubén Olmo amongst others.

He has performed in a variety of venues across Barcelona where he worked for years at the Palacio del Flamenco. He has also performed in Granada, Valencia, Madrid and Seville as well as international performances in Austria, Syria and Pakistan.
Born in London, Jero began to play the Flamenco guitar at a young age. He studied with masters such as El Entri, Gerardo Núñez, Rafael Cañizares, Eduardo Cortés amongst others. In 2016 he graduated from the Masters programme in Flamenco Guitar at ESMUC (Catalonia College of Music). He has performed across the world including the UK, USA, Spain, France, Belgium, Austria, Luxembourg, Morocco, Pakistan, Colombia and Malaysia. Resident in Barcelona since 2015, Jero performs in a traditional flamenco style whilst remaining true to his London roots in terms of the sounds he evokes and the visual aesthetic he maintains.
