Carlos directs DeNada Dance Theatre, a company dedicated to offering LGBTQIA+ representation on the dance stage, creating and touring narrative work that also has a strong Latinx cultural heritage. Carlos' work is theatrical, old-worldly, kitsch, camp and poignant. His queer work for children is about exploring gender identity, encouraging self expression, celebrating diverse families and tackling bullying. His works for young audiences are also interested in transcultural experiences.
As part of the Little Big Dance Symposium, Carlos will be pitching a new work commissioned by Bradford 2025: Lola the Lobster, an immersive queer cabaret experience for children and their adults. The production will be researched with children from migrant communities and will explore ideas of migration, changing environments, unusual families and homemaking.
