Yolanda M. Guadarrama is Mexican, started dancing in 1985, has been a choreographer since 1990 (creating about 30 pieces for different purposes). Beginning in 2007 she has been doing videodance as an alternative language different from the expression in the stage. Dance-Theater has been strongly important in her creations, she usually bases her movements in the daily body language. Yolanda has been part of the founders of some Dance groups, Production groups and Literature publishing projects (Revista Moho, Editorial Moho). She studied Industrial Engineering at the University, and decided to leave the world of the Engineering to enter to the world of contemporary dance. Most of her dance studies were in Mexico, recently she was in Berlin, where she picked some of the many options of dance training possibilities and organized (with Jenny Haack) MOTION: a videodance festival in ADA-Studio, Berlin, in 2008. At the moment she is giving birth to the project: MOVIMIENTO EN MOVIMIENTO in which series of screen dance and videodance pieces will be shown to the public two or three times a year in Museo del Chopo, Mexico City.
Some of the places where she has presented choreographies or videos are:
Teatro Jiménez Rueda, Foro-Bar LUCC, Foro John Lennon, El Amanecer Tapatío, Centro Cultural Los Talleres, Museo Dolores Olmedo. Ada-Studio in Berlín, Bodega Quetzalli in Oaxaca, SOMA, Museo del Chopo.
