The evening at Bellas Artes, highlighted by an audience overflowing with energy that kept an eye on the development of the two works, from the first dialogues that gave rise to the opening of the Tiffany curtain until the final applause acknowledgment of the quality and warmth that the artists of the northern border transmitted on stage.
The assembly of “Frontera en Movimiento” took two days, in a meticulous production process with the team of the two companies: Matthew Armstrong of Lux Boreal and Rubén Valencia of Péndulo Cero; who worked in perfect synchrony with the technical team of Palacio de Bellas Artes and the National Coordination of Dance to bring to fruition the scenographic, sound and light design that accompanied the evening.
The dance season will continue until the end of August with exponents from Mexico City and various states in an effort by the National Institute of Fine Arts to bring Mexicans closer through their culture and diversity of artists and creators who have the profile to exhibit their work in an veniue of this magnitude.
