Diego de la rosa

Diego de la Rosa grew up in Valladolid, Spain, where he discovered breaking at the age of 14. He left his home at 16 and began a journey that continues to this day. Diego took on numerous jobs in various fields, including waiter, hotel, construction worker, cleaning, and industries. At the age of 19, he left Spain, marking a new beginning in Germany. After years of effort, sacrifices, and tough decisions, he established himself as a performer, teacher, choreographer, and artistic researcher. Additionally, he is a dedicated student of theater and dramaturgy. Since then, he has immersed himself in the performing arts for over a decade, blending urban dance, contemporary dance, physical theater, and text to create hybrid languages reflective of today’s world. Also, he serves as one of the co-artistic directors and founders of Frantics Co., established in Berlin in 2013.

Since 2014, Diego has collaborated in several productions and projects with Theater Strahl in Berlin, specializing in young audiences, Hungry Sharks in Vienna, Theater Bonn, Theater Bremen, Theater Kassel, and Stadttheater Giessen, where he took on the role of rehearsal director and choreographic assistant. His collaborative efforts extend to working with choreographers such as Samir Akika (FR), Helder Seabra (PL), Adrienn Hód Hodworks (HU), Laura Scozzi (IT), JDot Tight Eyez (USA), Nadine Gerspacher (DE), Lorca Renoux (FR), Juan Tirado (ES), Andrés Marín (ES), Victor Rottier (NL), Kadir “Amigo” Memis (DE), Ursina Tossi (DE), and Johannes Wieland (DE), among others.

His artistic approach transcends traditional boundaries, seamlessly blending hip-hop culture, contemporary dance, and theater. Moreover, Diego de la Rosa has acquired extensive experience in teaching and leading professional training in various dance schools, festivals, and companies in and outside Europe. Since 2013, he has been developing his techniques. “Exploring Possibilities” emerged from his research and continues to expand with “Dramaturgical Body.”

Currently, Diego’s career is focused on artistic research, creation, and education, conducting his workshops, and collaborating with independent artists and companies.
