Published reviews




“With tear, with poetry and with force, clean, gentle, quiet, dance full of clarity, free contemporary dance. A place to feel, to think,... very well interpreted with elegance and neatness, with sobriety.”

Lupe Gómez, El Correo Gallego



“Spectacular mastery of her body. A piece chosen by the Organization due to its proximity and vocation of welcome. Superb in its articulation in a sort of risky body deconstruction followed by vibrant moments that were evoking solitude, sometimes desperate, and a need for love producing a tender sadness in the moments that Blanca Arrieta was looking for the warmth of the public.”

J. Javier Paisano, Diario de Sevilla



“Expressiveness at its maximum level was in sum the spectacle offered by the Bilbao choreographer Blanca Arrieta in Carme Teatre.”

Paula Reig, Queydonde Valencia



“We feel that something is about to be born, burst, the language of the entire body of Arrieta avoids any regularity. These initial few minutes of dance are sufficient to give an account of her level of artistry and beauty of her movements.”

Agus Pérez, Berria



“Rest commence from the absolute quietude achieved not only through the dance but from the music and the staging, on having got rid of everything, …her great talent is demonstrated in the virtuosity of her choreography, in its enormous expressiveness and in the numerous demonstrations of technical skills during the entire show.”

Lupe Julián, Barcelona



“Heady solo of Blanca Arrieta. Only her arms interpreted a dance by itself, drawing complex paths in the air occasionally leading us to pleasant silences.”

Christie Taylor, The Irish Times



“A mental dance that gives free passage to the pure physical sensation..., a magnificent solo, very vital…, dancer of exquisite poise and long lines, with an impeccable torso domain. Their movements are perfect, compact, with weight and there is an space interaction of their body and the physical location of the stage, extremely intelligent.”

Idoia Lecumberri, El Correo



“There is nothing virtual, everything is physical in a work done with fragments, small passages that are juxtaposed inside a stage space divided by different scenographic elements that embrace the relief each time.”

Bárbara Raubert Novell, Diari Avui Barcelona



“With a risky and groundbreaking work displaced viewers for every corner of the banquet room of the Kursaal in which the stands of the Fair are installed. An exhilarating experience that raised this choreographer that, without defined times or spaces for the public, forced us to discover and track each dancer to be able to see the show, reaching a great closeness between the performer and the public.”

Ana Remiro, Diario Vasco



“Born as a tribute to the human figure in all its dimensions, ready to dissect down the gesture language of the human being. Beauty in the line of movement at the service of a very well constructed piece with a thorough cleanliness. Blanca’s choreographic language has a greater complexity and richness. Displaying her taste on dance with elaborate lines staying away from the harsh. Her movement is sober, clean and organic, brimming with choreographic material of great interest.”

Iratxe de Aranzibia, Donostilandia



“Blanca Arrieta works the body of the dancer from its minimum expression, therefore, there is a beautiful presence of individual features in all her Works.”

BA Danza



“On the stage, as if they were placed in the middle of nowhere, immersed in an extremely beautiful light. The choreographer has built a very polished and suggestive work, resorting to inner exploration or introspection in this long and beautiful passage that one of the dancers crosses in terrible solitude, and analyzing the isolation and communication between the soul of people when two dancers dance in common.”

Agus Pérez, Egunkaria



“Filled up, in the twilight of her scenario, with her strong presence, at the same time deep and light, revealing her universe full of contrasts with great authenticity, forcefully sensitive, in a piece rich in scenographic elements.”

Ana Remiro, El Diario Vasco
