This project tries to collect information about the colonial past in the different European cities, to filter it and to transform it into our modern times. Gutiérrez works with local dancers and artists from the respective cities. A complex amalgamation takes place: historical facts, personal biographies, site-specific performances and interviews. Equipped with headphones, the audience hears all this information, which the dancers transform into body interventions.
So far, three projects have been realized at the International Festival Theater der Welt in Hamburg (2017), at International dance festival JULIDANS in Amsterdam (2019) and at the Festival Die Irritierte Stadt in Stuttgart (2020).
The next project takes place in Mexico City.
Decolonize your mind! Decolonize your body! Decolonize your city!
