I am Jose Ignacio Delgado . Author, actor and popularizer specializing in the art of the Spanish “First Baroque”. I investigate Literature, Theater, Historical Court Dance, and the History of Gastronomy. I have also followed traditional and historical percussion courses.  

As a director and producer of projects, I always seek a balance between the historical rigor that is due to ancient art, and the consistent use of new technologies.  As an actor specializing in classic texts, I pursue psychological depth over artifice. I am convinced that an exhaustive knowledge of the author, as well as of his historical context, are keys to a correct interpretation of his work.

Producer of the Italian-Spanish Renaissance dance and music company Il Gentil Lauro , with whom I collaborated on stage productions such as “XPOSED”, “La Terrible” or “The postmodern gaze in the Renaissance”.
