Christian Guerematchi (Slovenia, 1981) is fascinated by human existence and the social structures involved. Skin colour, and in particular the black body in a world where white culture predominates, sexual orientation and gender are themes that emerge repeatedly in his work. ICK already supported the tour of White Noise (2019) and NAM (Non Aligned Movement) in 2020-2021.
The Dutch Fonds Podiumkunsten supports Christian with a new makers trajectory grant for the period October 2021 - September 2023. With this grant Christian will develop his choreographic artistry at ICK Artist Space and we will see more of him in the near future.
Christian Guerematchi grew up in Slovenia, where he completed his ballet training and became a member of the Slovenian National Ballet. In 2006 he came to the Netherlands where he worked with choreographers such as Stephen Shropshire, Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten and Nicole Beutler. He combines his dance career with making his own work.
