Description Compañía Kaari & Roni Martin (until 2013 Compañía Kaari Martin) is an independent dance group founded in 2002. The primary aim of the group is to incorporate flamenco and its Nordic dimension into the field of international contemporary art and make it internationally known to very different audiences. The group has a wide repertoire covering dramatised flamenco theatre, children's pieces, abstract choreographies and improvisational performances. It produces at least one big premiere per year and runs its own festival of contemporary flamenco, Flamingo.
The company was the first foreign dance company to win an award in the highly acclaimed Choreography Competition of Madrid with the piece Tell me Rain (2006). The company was also awarded in the same competition in 2012 with three prizes. The work 'The Raven and The Timepiece' received first prize in the categories Best Solo Choreography, Best Composition for Dance and Best Costume Design for Dance.
