Design Statement

I began this project with nothing but Bach´s music. It was very interesting to conceive light and space through feelings and intuition. I wanted people to have a sacred experience but in a very subtle way. I began by searching for sacred symbols, even though I knew it was possible that people would never know where the symbolism came from. I started my research with symbols in numbers. Seven musical notes, capital sins, days of the week, cardinal points, apostles, the Holy Trinity, and so on…
The concept was to provide the dancers with elements that they could use to perform the show where the number of elements, dimensions and proportions of the stage would have a sacred meaning. The stage consisted of a golden background, props that could be used as seats, steps or columns, and an array of 7x7 fluorescent lamps that dancers included in their routines.

Patricia Gutiérrez Arriaga

I studied architecture and a post graduate degree on ephemeral architecture and began my professional career in architectural lighting design. I collaborated designing three exhibitions at the Centro Cultural de la Embajada de México in France while attending the Interchange Program SEP / Ministère de l´Education Nationale de la Recherche et de la Technologie.

In 2000 I began working with Alejandro Luna [Honorable Scenographer OISTAT] designing opera, theatre, dance and cinema in Mexico, Colombia, France and USA. I have participated several times in the Festival de México as technical director in set and lighting for Romeo Castelucci, Edouard Lock and Robert Lepage.

I have developed my set, lighting and costume design career in theatre, dance and opera for directors such as José Caballero, José Sanchis Sinisterra, Guillermo Heras, Alberto Lomnitz, Enrique Singer, Arturo Gama, Ignacio Ortiz and Hernán del Riego in Mexico and David Korish & Roxana Ávila in Costa Rica.

In 2005 I was granted the Jóvenes Creadores FONCA fellowship in set design.

Since 2011 I am a member of Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte, a national distinction to those who have given Mexico prestige in the field of arts.
