Rafael Estévez, born in Huelva, is a dancer and choreographer who has succeeded next to great flamenco figures such as Joaquín Cortés and Antonio Canales, and later with his own company. Since September of 2016 he is the arts director of the Andalusian Flamenco Ballet. However, three years before, a rare disease was about to kill him. He was the eighth case of a disease that made him go through surgery six times. Against all odds, he managed to survive, and today he speaks openly about that experience and how it affected him both at personal and professional levels. He assures that he is not afraid of failure or death.
