"Because of my own history, I've been inspired by Spanish culture and the Black diaspora. As a Black-African man growing up in Madrid I found it difficult to see myself clearly within the society I was a part of. - Juanjose Mouko Nsue

"In dance we can see how music and movement is used to communicate in a surrealistic way." - JMN

"I want to challenge the boundaries and create a fantasy world in which cultures and traditions melt together." - JMN
