MY DANCE ROOM - 2009

International Festival Dance Kiosk, Hamburger Sprechwerk, Hamburg, july 2009

PRESS "my dance room" by Yolanda Gutierrez was the final and climax of the small Hamburg festival in the festival. For her video production, which can also be seen, the choreographer filmed people dancing in their own four walls. She chose six for the stage and was inspired by her skills to stage them. Musicians, actors, dancers and artists came together to turn their talents into a shared stage experience. Between living room lamps, they show their personal way of presenting themselves on stage. Gutierrez understood wonderfully how to interweave their very own professionalism into a well-rounded piece of dance and music on stage. - Hamburger Abendblatt, Birgit Schmalmack, July 28, 2009
