Luis Martín Oya Biography

DIRECTOR OF PRODUCTION

Luis Martín Oya portrait

He was born in Madrid and began his classical dance studies at the age of 11, taught by Pedro de la Cruz. He qualified both at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Danza de Madrid and—with Marika Bessobrasova—at the L’École de Danse Classique Princesse Grace de Monte Carlo.

In 1987, he joined the Compañía Nacional de Danza under the direction of Maya Plisetskaya. It is from here on that he starts performing his first roles as soloist dancer. Following Nacho Duato’s inception as company director, he was promoted to principle dancer. He participated in all Nacho Duato’s choreographic creations and danced most of the CND’s repertoire, which also included pieces by great international choreographers, such as Jiri Kylian, William Forsythe, Ohad Naharin and Mats Ek, all of whom he work with directly.

On concluding his career as performer, Nacho Duato placed him on the CND’s production team and, in May 2015, he was named Director of Production.

As CND representative, he acts as mentor to EmprendeEscena-Factoría Cultural, advising on new cultural projects at national level.

He has presented papers at the Complutense University of Madrid, in the area of cultural management, and has worked on a wide variety of cultural development projects with public and private enterprises at home and abroad.

He is an honours graduate in business management, qualifying at ESERP (Madrid) and he holds a Master in Internationalisation and Cooperation of Management in the Cultural and Creative Sector, from the Complutense University of Madrid.
