La Singla

La Singla

25th TiDF: World Premiere

Antonia Singla was born in the suburbs of Barcelona and became deaf shortly after birth, so she learned to dance flamenco without hearing the music. At the age of 17, she revolutionized the world of flamenco, but before she turned 30 she disappeared forever from the stage. Fifty years later, a young woman finds some old archives and is captivated by her. La Singla seems to hide something tragic behind her gaze and transmits a passion that goes beyond dance. Why had she never heard of her before?  So she decides to unravel the mystery surrounding La Singla's disappearance and sets out on a journey to find her and learn her heartbreaking story firsthand.
