The double-hitter program will include two dramatized dance performances, “The Architectural Body” and “Locomotion,” both choreographed the the group’s founder and artistic director, Francisco Rojas, with an eight-member troupe of all-Mexican artists.

Mixing drawings and a dramatic show of lights, the dances are intended, in Rojas’ words, “to offer an insight into the future of modern dance within the context of other contemporary 21st century art.”

There will be no admission fee for those who wish to attend the live performance, and the virtual performance will be streamed on Mexico’s National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature (INBAL) internet channels.
