Guillermo de la Chica López was born in Granada, Spain. He began to take ballet and modern theater classes with the dance program regulated by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). At the age of twelve, he started travelling to England every summer to get more knowledge about other dance fields, such as commercial dance with Ryan Jenkins and musical theater.
In 2017, he attended the University of Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt am Main, to start his studies in the Bachelor Dance program. Here he developed his ballet technique and gained valuable skills in international folklore and improvisation techniques like contact and Forsythe improvisation. Over the years, he received significant artistic impulses working with choreographers and renowned people as Nora Kimball-Mentzos, Andrea Tallis, Dieter Heitkamp, Georg Reischl, Johannes Wieland, Regina van Berkel, Ayman Harper, Paul White, Emanuel Gat, Hannah Shakti Bühler and Iván Pérez. His artistic eager never ceases, that is why he is always up to travel in order to participate in seminars and workshops. This creates the opportunity to work directly with people such as Iñaki Azpillaga, Jacopo Godani, Rakesh Sukesh and Martin Kilvadi.
Since 2018, Guillermo has been asked to be part of different projects and festivals quite often. That year he became part of the cast of "Johann Faustus" by Hanns Eisler and the next year, attended Zukunft Tanz - Abend der jungen Choreografie. Guillermo's last participation has been quite recent, in 2020. In "The Blue Knight", he could work with the outstanding choreographer Gustavo Gomes on an hour and a half solo for the dance performance film. Here he finally went deeper into the fusion of what he loves the most: dance, theater and video.
He not only loves dance, but also expressing himself on stage in one way or another: he feels quite comfortable singing and acting with an audience in front. Writing is another huge tool he always turns to whenever he feels like. This made him start writing his first novel at the age of 11 and win three literary awards (2013, 2015 and 2017). In addition, photography began to interest him as well. Lately he did some collaborations as a model in different projects. An example of this is Cruising (Montevideo, 2019), by the Spanish artist Alejandría Cinque, where he could play with concepts like nudity and queer history.
Guillermo loves creating and is a very diligent and highly motivated person and artist. He enjoys working and experimenting with dance, theatre, text and shifting roles that are already determined in our society. This is quite appreciable in the last piece he created and presented in July 2020 in Frankfurt, "thE lOss Of sElf". Guillermo's first experience as a choreographer was remarkable and he is looking forward to doing it again.
