“From the series The Dance Went Home. In unusual and almost impossible postures and in even more unlikely places in their homes some of the most talented dancers from the prestigious Bogota Capital Dance school of ballet and modern dance, posed for my camera. With the assistance of his director, teacher and choreographer, Jaime Otalora, we did this project during the strict confinement we suffered a due to the pandemic. An affirmation of the perseverance and dignity of art in the face of adversity.
“That day the weather was a bit dark and cloudy. It was cold. The session took me by surprise but it was very exciting to do it because of the trust generated by the work team, because it motivated me a lot to do things the best way possible. I remember that I felt that I have to warm up a lot to make any movement and that day in particular I think it was the motivation, I felt my body quite willing, quite free. And it was very nice to feel myself there, on the roof defying gravity with strength and concentration. I was held approximately 30 seconds!” Paula Suarez, dancer.”
