Yolanda Gutiérrez in Kollaboration mit Kampnagel

In the finest [k]lub atmosphere will be shown Mexican art, kitchen and kitsch, visual, discursive and music - that's MEXICAN SPIRIT. For KONTEXT MEXICO, the German-Mexican choreographer Yolanda Gutiérrez, in collaborationwith Kampnagel, is organizing a festival center for four days, opening up an area of ​​perception and reception where a modern and alternative vision of Mexico is sought through the senses and perception. From Wednesday to Saturday, daily before the shows begin, Mexican journalists, filmmakers and activists are discussing overburdening and up-to-date topics from the society, culture and politics of their country in the setting of a Cock Fighting arena. After the stage shows, MEXICAN SPIRIT is part of the late program, including performances by the Mexican queer activist and radical performer Orgypunk and the fake-mexican shaman Doña Catrina. For fans of Cumbia, Salsa, Moebathon Tropical Bass, Oriental Bass, Dembow and feminist Reggaeton, there are nightly DJ sets of Panchita Peligro, a fusion of Latin American rhythms and electronic music. Bähm!

Political Bodies / Yolanda Gutiérrez & Jens Dietrich

Political Body hat im Englischen eine doppelte Bedeutung. Als feststehender Begriff bezieht sich der Ausdruck auf eine politische Institution. Und wortwörtlich genommen geht es um das Politische des Körpers. Mit dem Projekt Political Bodies beabsichtigten wir die Bandbreite zwischen den beiden Lesarten sichtbar zu machen: Welche politische Rolle übernimmt der Körper in der Kunst, und wie wird aus einer künstlerischen Bewegung eine politische.

Die ersten Ideen für die Tanzperformance Political Bodies entstanden, als Yolanda Gutiérrez 2012 eine Künstlerresidenz an der Ecole des Sables in Toubab Dialaw machte und mit Tänzern aus der Hip-Hop-Szene Dakars in Kontakt kam.
