Following the success of five live streamed productions from Spain’s Festival de Jerez in 2021, Chicago-based production company ToritoMedia and live streaming platform Third Row Live are returning to the world’s foremost flamenco and Spanish dance festival – at the request of Jerez Festival leadership – to offer five new high-quality streamed performances filmed live at the 26th edition of the fest.
Founded over 25 years ago, the Festival de Jerez is the longest-running, annual flamenco festival, gathering crowds and drawing eyes from every corner of the world. Between February 21 and March 20, 2022, ToritoMedia and Third Row will be streaming five live music and dance performances from the festival based in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Now, productions which traditionally have limited touring possibilities can now be seen from the comfort of one’s home anywhere on the globe.
This year’s streamed lineup includes some of flamenco’s most lauded artists:
Maria Moreno – More (No) More – available from February 23
Ana Morales – En la cuerda floja / On the Tightrope – available from February 24
Pablo Gimenez Spanish Ensemble – En tierras de Jerez / On Jerez Land – available from February 26
Angel Rojas – Ser Baile. Capítulo 1 Triología. Geografía Flamenca del Pensamiento / Be Dance. Chapter 1 Flamenco Geography of Thought Trilogy – available from February 28
Rosario Toledo – Playeras – available from March 5
Live stream tickets can be purchased for individual performances or a festival pass, which gives viewers access to the full lineup at a discounted rate. Ticket-buyers have on-demand access to five performances for 15 days after their respective stream launch dates (listed above). Tickets can be purchased at: https://thirdrow.live/jerez/p/torito/

ToritoMedia was founded in 2007 by American journalist and filmmaker Justine Bayod Espoz with the goal of filling the cultural reporting void, on a local and international level, as well as to stimulate the creation of bilingual materials to promote a cultural exchange between Spanish speaking countries and English speaking countries. Upon moving to Madrid, Spain, Justine discovered both a need and a demand for well written and in-depth cultural reporting in Spain and abroad. Although ToritoMedia began exclusively as a written content and translation provider, it quickly became evident that photographic and video content went hand in hand with the written content created for clients. To date, ToritoMedia has created written and filmed content for publications and Web sites in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
