"For me, the medium of video is a wonderful complement to my work, since dance is, after all, ephemeral and short-lived. I have realized various video works so far, from experimental to on stage and/or in the form of a short documentary. My last video project MY DANCE SPACE is a good example, which I realized as a reflection of the first lockdown with dancers* and choreographers from Hamburg (February 2021).


Xiamen, China, 2004
Experimental video about handmade noodles prepared by Muslim Chinese.

Premiere at Abaton Cinema for „Kinometer 5“
Festivals: Open Air Kino "Mondschein Festival" Tschernowitz, Ucraine
"Kampf der Künste" (Shortfilm Slam), Zeise Kinos,Hamburg.

Developed from the short film series dealing with "instant" soups and their globalization, this time the journey goes to China. In the port city of Xiamen, Yolanda Gutiérrez shows how Chinese Muslims prepare noodles by hand. It is fascinating to observe with what speed and skill they do this. The short film shows how a young man makes the noodles, cooks them and how people sit at tables on the sidewalk waiting to eat them.
