Mateo Galindo Torres (GUETCHA GUARITCHA) is a Colombian born multidisciplinary dance artist based in Toronto. He started his dance training in Bogota at an early age, and deepened his studies in the USA, Cuba, and Canada. His work is highly influenced by his Latinx American background, often politically charged, and inspired by social subject matters. Mateo fuses his eclectic movement training within his choreography creating a distinct movement quality. He has performed professionally in Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Germany, Mexico, and Panama. This season he will be performing in Stratford’s 2020 productions of Wendy and Peter Pan and Frankenstein. He has been dancing with Kaeja d’Dance since 2015 and has commissioned Karen Kaeja for an upcoming duet in 2021.
