Dance Magacine – Justine Bayod – 18/10/18
With a contemporary air that exalts—rather than obscures—flamenco tradition, and a technique and stamina that boggle the mind, Eduardo Guerrero’s professional trajectory has done nothing but skyrocket since being named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” earlier this year. His 2017 solo Guerrero has toured widely, and he has created premieres for the Jerez Festival (Faro) and the 2018 Seville Flamenco Biennial (Sombra Efímera). In the midst of his seemingly unstoppable ascension, he’s created Gaditanía, his first work utilizing a corps de ballet. Guerrero is currently touring the U.S. with this homage to Cadiz, the city of his birth.

Eduardo Guerrero baila en una burbuja
El bailaor gaditano por fin estrena hoy, ante la magnífica portada del rectorado de la Hispalense, su obra «Sombra efímera», una coreografía que se realiza dentro de una enorme burbuja creada por el arquitecto italiano, Marco Canevacci.
«Sombra efímera» es un proyecto instalativo en el que las imágenes dimensionales ganan plasticidad y permiten al espectador imaginar multiciplicidad de mundos, construir espacios íntimos y privados en relación con el espacio público. El espectador puede situarse dentro y fuera de la burbuja transparente.
David Montes – MasJerez.com (Flamencomanía) – 7 Agosto 2018
Un amor en cada Puerto
(..) En “Faro se disfruta de forma unitaria de diferentes palos flamencos (..). Se ve a un Edu Guerrero con carácter y personalidad. Gestos, formas, maneras de ocupar el espacio están haciendo de él un bailaor diferenciado del resto y eso se agradece. (..)Es una satisfacción ver cómo se puede parar el baile, como se puede maridar la danza con el flamenco y cómo es posible seguir siendo original sin perder los cánones flamencos.
Le Dauphiné – Lux scene national de Valence (Francia) – 17 Juin 2018
Spectacle époustouflant de grâce et de virtuosité.
Eduardo Guerrero a proposé, ce soir-là, une véritable performance chorégraphique et artistique car, seul en scène avec ses musiciens, il remplit l’espace intégralement et magnifiquement. Le Lux a fait salle comble, au point de refuser des spectateurs, et les avis étaient unanimes à la sortie, on venait d’assister à un spectacle exceptionnel. Alliant grâce, puissance et émotion, Eduardo Guerrero, avec son visage de “conquistador espagnol” a conquis le public valentinois, resté debout de longues minutes à l’applaudir.
Maison de la Danse de Lyon – Amélie Bertrand – 14/06/18
Eduardo Guerrero, c’est un guerrier du flamenco : rugissant en scène dès sa première apparition avec sa stature impressionnante, regard dense et presque un peu fou qui toise le public. Gros costaux au coeur tendre cependant, la danse d’Eduardo Guerrero est parfois sensuelle et douce comme celle d’une femme, et le coeur grand ouvert pour accueillir l’amour d’un public déjà conquis ce soir-là à la Maison de la Danse. Un flamenco de tradition, pas forcément le plus facile d’accès pour un.e néophyte, mais une transcendance de la danse qui se passe de mot.
Westdeutche Zeitung – Düsseldorfer Kultur – 4/04/18
Atemberaubendes finale mit Eduardo Guerrero
Weniger politish, aber die Grenzen von Tanz in die Tiefen philosophischer Auseinander-setzung mit sich und der Welt ausweitend – in packend energetischen, teils pantomimischen Szenen-, zeigte sich Eduardo Guerreros Werk “Guerrer” (ein Spiel mit seinem Namen und dem Spanischen Wort für,, Krieger”). Seine virtuose Flamencokunst bettete der gefeierte Tänzer in eine emotional vielschitchtige Performance, mit kraftvollen Gesten und tiefgründigen Andeutungen rund um den inneren.
O-Ton – Kulturmagazin mit Chrakter – Michael S. Zerban – 3/04/18
Selten erlebt man das Publikum im Tanzhaus so enthusiastisch wie an diesem Abend. Guerrero genießt den Applaus und die stehenden Ovationen sichtlich. Lange bleibt er auf einem Stuhl sitzen und sieht sich den Publikumssturm an, ehe es zur eigentlichen Applaus-Ordnung geht. Sehr sympathisch. Es ist sein erster Applaus in Deutschland. Und er zeigt, dass das doch ein besonderer Moment ist.
Diario de Jerez – Fran Pereira – 4/3/18
Eduardo Guerrero, a bailaor who only has his presence fills the scene. He has packaging, personality, and has learned to master the situation with a facility that frightens. His physical power is overwhelming and his dance is capable of caressing, intoxicating or pulsing the fiber, since it measures time with the precision of a clock. When he stops, braces and likes, as when dancing for the joys, when he goes wild, it is a tsunami with his feet, as shown by the cane and the seguiriya, and when he pulls improvisation he is unstoppable.
Eduardo is getting bigger every day on stage, and his versatility goes beyond a choreography, a brace or a wheelbarrow, no matter how difficult they are. It is endowed with something special that when confronted by the public ends up captivating him, whatever he does.
Teresa Fernandez Herrera – 18/03/2018
In the dance of Eduardo Guerrero, the diversity of his education is always present. He dances flamenco, but his classical training and even touches of contemporary are always present, without detracting in any way the density of his flamenco root. Eduardo is very intense, from every angle of where you look. Intense athletic body structure, which sometimes reminds a ballet divo, with which he plays to create movements in atypical positions in a dancer, always wonderfully integrated and coordinated in each sequence of his dance. His arms are as prodigious as his feet. And this reverts as always to the theme of beauty, of the total harmony that originates in the interior. There is a lot of spirituality, soul, heart, whatever you want to call yourself within your extraordinary corporeality. And there lies the special gift that sets him apart. In that depth that gives his dance a naturalness, as if moving around the scene was something not learned, something without effort, as if it were an inspiration that came from the natural harmony of the universe.
La Voz de Almería – 12/7/17
With a force and speed overwhelming, the Cádiz conjugated classic elegance with contemporary winks, for a staging full of technique, as demonstrated by tarantas and alegrías, (…) A point of modernism that gave luster to its scenic domain, quite similar to the beginnings of a reference of the dance as Joaquín Cortés.
ABC Seville – Marta Carrasco – 26/4/2017
Three Horsewomen and a Warrior.
Eduardo Guerrero is on the move. His dance is chock-full of elements, it is intense, with powerful footwork, spectacular conclusions and dramatic finales; his arms draw geometric figures or join together above his head in gestures of pure Flamenco. The original costumes are equally remarkable: boots, leather, red jackets, tunics, skirts as those of ancient warriors, or polka-dot patterned shirts.
Without a doubt this spectacular performance portrays the best of this Flamenco dancer, who has been forged by hard work and notable results in companies such as those of Eva Yerbabuena or Rocio Molina. Eduardo Guerrero has managed to create a personal language, in his aesthetics, as much as in his gestures, or his dance. It seems that finally the warrior has won this battle.
Diario de Sevilla – Juan Vergillos – 26/4/2017
Brutal. Radical. He dances with fury and from the guts. Naked. An exorcism. But this Flamenco dancer never loses his elegance, the style that is his hallmark. He remains onstage throughout the performance, excepting at the end. This is a real ‘tour de force’, as much physically as, above all, emotionally. Guerrero is a total dancer, portraying a powerful technique that he has gleaned from the classics – Antonio – and also Carmen Amaya, updating their legacy with naturalness and, as said before, with elegance.
Revista La Flamenca – Luís M. Pérez. – Seville 26/4/2017
Eduardo Guerrero, the Mother of All Battles.
The dancer from Cadiz reveals himself as one of the first figures in Flamenco dance, with his creation “Guerrero” (“Warrior”) in Flamenco Viene del Sur.
“Guerrero” is a performance that is well worth being put on in any theater worldwide. And not only for the quality of it’s choreography, which is more original than any other seen here in the last months.
An over helming force, an enviable physique that at some moments appears to become dislocated, and at others brings to mind the shadow of a Juan de Mena Christ. Impossible equilibrium, dancing in a crouched position and even slithering from one end to the other of the proscenium.
Eduardo Guerrero knows the secrets of Flamenco dance managing to stir up the emotions of a most orthodox audience, who had thought they would be going back home without having seen any classical dance. First class arm movements, dreamlike footwork – to sum up: goosebumps.
Diario de Cádiz – A.C. – 15/3/2017
‘Guerrero’ (‘Warrior’), performed by the Flamenco dancer Eduardo Guerrero has been awarded the XVI Audience Award at the Jerez Festival.
The proposal made by the artist from Cadiz summed up an average of 9.95 points in the voting carried out by the audiences to the different performances that were presented at the Villamarta Theater, during the Festival. With this premiere performance of ‘Guerrero’ on March 10th he vindicated himself as being a dancer in full progression and has already become one of the main icons in the Flamenco dance.
El Mundo – Manuel Martín Martín – 11/3/2017
Eduardo Guerrero pushes any body movement that comes to his mind to the limit. The result is what could be expected: there is no victory greater than that of vanquishing oneself. (…)in which the wounds of love are cured by deploying a purity of movement – almost always peripheral and brilliant – in which he shows extraordinary force and technique, requiring monumental synchrony for it’s execution.
He has known how to make the most of the Flamenco song universe, integrating it into the narrative of his proposal. This has made him become a well-considered figure of the moment. When he deals with themes such as enthusiasm, drama or eroticism, he invites us into an intimate creation, as narrative as it is literal, to go on to unfold the story of a man who confronts constant challenges, and overcomes them all.
Diario de Jerez – Fran Pereira – 11/3 2017
The Vanishing Point of Dance.
The Villamarta Theater acclaims an interesting conceptual proposal from the artist from Cadiz. Eduardo Guerrero has always been an unusual dancer. His stylized figure and his conception of dance have made him stand notably apart from the rest. Yesterday, in his solo premiere at the Villamarta Theater, not only did he vindicate himself as an artist in full effervescence, but he also presented the credentials towards becoming an icon of modern Flamenco dance. He has the personality and condition, and all he lacked was a performance like ‘Guerrero’ (‘Warrior’), where he unfolds a language and an aesthetic approach to dance that are out of reach for most.
Corriere de la Sera – Valeria Crippa – Milan, Italy 6/7/2016
Guerrero is a pure artist, possessing a natural instinct for the stage, and a magnetism whose histrionic exuberance shows spontaneity as a counterbalance.
Close-up there are two marvelous musicians, three monumental singers dressed in black, evoking the feminine ideal of maternity, an ever present source of support for the artist: Guerrero is the child that is rocked in their arms, and the adult with a broken body, reminding us of Christ in Michelangelo’s Piéta.
Is Guerrero the new Joaquín Cortés? He is surely his most direct heir, a dancer prodigious for his technique born of a desire for choreographic freedom, which will cross genres, from Flamenco to Modern dance, and back.
De Flamenco.com – Silvia Cruz – 3/7/2016
Note: This dancer does the best turns in nowadays Flamenco. His dance is precise to the millimeter, knows speed well but yet enjoys a pause, and moves his arms better than the rest of the men in his profession.
Jot down: The Flamenco, which this story holds, is not entirely contemporary, nor is it immoveable, it is full of references and has an air about it that will soon become a brand.
Desire: That Eduardo will never be at a loss for a stage, that he may develop his idea of Flamenco, not exactly pure dance, nor empty of meaning. Wish this, because his work is demanding. Wish this, because he can become even better. And to say better, is to say that a state of glory can be reached – because what he presents in ‘Guerrero’ (Warrior), is a magnificent creation.
Remember: Go to see ‘Guerrero’, as soon as you can. And don’t worry if at the end of the show you feel a certain feeling of disquiet in your chest: it is just your heart learning a new language.
El Mundo – Manuel Martín Martín – 5/3/2015
“(…) it allows to assess both the high technical skill of Guerrero and the complexity of its well thought-out and extensively elegant aesthetic, where the rhythm of tarantos, tangos or tientos by Lombo, complements the arrival of martinetes and soleás. Despite that all these varieties breathe the fresh air of different dance languages, they keep on preserving the linearity of their essences.”
El Diario de Jerez – Fran Pereira – 5/3/2015
“Guerrero knows better than anyone his appearance and the elasticity his body allows, and when it comes to express in a choreography, he takes advantage of those qualities to the point of exhaustion”. We all witnessed that talent while he was dancing tarantos, tangos and tonás rounded off with seguiriyas (…). The audience there present recognized the effort of the flamenco dancer who was finally given a standing ovation.
Global Flamenco – Silvia Calado – 5/3/2015
“The flamenco dancer met the expectations of the audience who crowded the room. And he did it with his infectious freshness and high expertise; with all the times he shined; with his great sense of rhythm and his provocative attitude. ”
De Flamenco – Estela Zatania – 5/3/2015
“Eduardo Guerrero is one of the best prepared dancers on the modern flamenco scene. He combines strength, creativity, experience and an excellent preparation (…). The artistic career and the dances of Eduardo Guerrero are invaluable.”
