Urška Centa (1993), born in Ljubljana, is a dancer, choreographer, musician and pedagogue who takes the art of flamenco as her creative basis. Her work expands into various artistic fields and also includes music and poetry. She is known for her focus on genre hybridisation and understanding body as a sonic instrument. Between 2014 and 2017, she studied in Madrid at flamenco academies Centro de Danza Española y Arte Flamenco Amor de Dios and Centro Superior de Estudios del Flamenco UFlamenco. In 2021, she completed her studies of contemporary dance and choreography at the AMEU Dance Academy in Ljubljana. Her best-known authorial projects are ENO – ONE (Cankar Centre, Flota Institute); Lorca, You and I with Katja Šulc and Robert Jukič; One ballad, please! with Zvezdana Novaković and performances in the music groups Nairuz, Sentido project and MTF feat. Sub-Lime. Since 2017, she has been curating the series Noches de Tablao in Ljubljana, a platform for the development of new projects that draw their core from flamenco and combine it with other world music cultures and contemporary artistic trends. She performs on important stages and festivals (Cankar Centre, Kino Šiška, SSG Trst, SNG Drama, SARTR, Teatro Palamostre, Bi flamenko, 59. Jazz Festival Ljubljana, Grlom u jagode Jazz Festa Sarajevo, Lent Festival, Festival Approdi, etc.) and collaborates with prominent Slovenian and foreign musicians (Robert Jukič, Tomaž Gajšt, Tadej Kampl, Nino Mureškić, Zvezdana Novaković, Katja Šulc, Mirza Redžepagić, Murat, Joe Kaplowitz, Marco de Ana, Izidor Erazem Vidmar, Marko Churnchetz, Kristijan Krajnčan, Petra Vidmar, Vito Marenče, etc.). She creates a unique world of creativity and, in constant pursuit of an intercultural vision, develops a performative language that forms between flamenco and contemporary dance. As a pedagogue, she regularly teaches flamenco classes and movement/music workshops in Ljubljana, as well as mentors student performances and dance miniatures (Odveč srce, Ena volčja, Našle smo svoj prostor pod soncem, etc.).
