This is me.
This is me.

My name is Iker Karrera and I am a Spanish dancer and choreographer with residence in Madrid.

In addition to working as a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher in Spain and abroad, a year ago I released my first short piece of contemporary dance: #7fm.


It is the title of my first contemporary dance duet that I premiered last June 2016 in C.C. Paco Rabal of Madrid, interpreted by two fantastic dancers, Carla Diego and Raymond Naval.

Since then the piece couldn´t have had a better reception among the public: it has been awarded in different national competitions and represented, in addition to all of Spain, in European cities like Paris, Brussels, Nice or Hereford (UK).

When we thought that the trajectory of the piece could not go better, we have recently been selected to present the piece at the Dumbo Dance Festival in NYC, an important contemporary dance festival that celebrates its 17th edition next October at the Gelsey Kirkland ArtsCenter , in Brooklyn, Nyc.

But there is a small inconvenience, and it is that the Festival does not cover travel expenses, accommodation, or meal costs during our stay in NYC. However, it would be very interesting to be able to present my work there since the Festival is attended by important representatives of the world of dance as well as programmers at a national and international level.

From now on, YOUR HELP is essential.

Why do we need your help?

We need your help to cover all the expenses required to take #7fm to NYC, that is to say, 3 plane tickets from Madrid and cover 5 days of accomodations and meals in the big apple.

About rewards

The rewards we offer are related to dance, that is to say, in addition to thanking you enormously for your help, by sending you the official poster of the piece, we will give you dance classes with me and with Carla and Raymond among many other teachers from Madrid. And we'll also invite you to a private #7fm rehearsal in Madrid. Where? In Danza180º, dance school that I co-direct with my mates Fernando Lázaro and Amaya Galeote in Madrid.

Predicted calendar

If I get the funding we will travel to NYC next October 4th and it will be once we come back, October 12, when I will start delivering all the rewards and organizing the private rehearsal.

#01 / Nuestra participación en NYC ha sido un éxito

Queridos mecenas,

Ya estamos de vuelta en Madrid después de haber pasado 5 fantásticos días en NYC.

Tuvimos la ocasión de presentar la pieza "#7fm" en el Dumbo Dance Festival en dos ocasiones, una en la Gala de apertura del Festival y la otra dos días más tarde. Ambas actuaciones salieron especialmente bien, con las localidades casi agotadas, y por mi parte estoy muy contento con la acogida que tuvo el público con la pieza.

Se representaron más de 60 trabajos durante los 4 días del Festival y el último día, en la Gala de Clausura, "#7fm" fue reconocida como una de las dos mejores piezas del Festival obteniendo un reconocimiento especial por parte de la organización. ¡Y no podemos estar más contentos!

Y todo esto, ha sido gracias a vuestra colaboración en este proyecto. Habéis creído en mi trabajo y gracias a eso hemos tenido la oportunidad de dar visibilidad a "#7fm" en una ciudad como Nueva York.
