In early 2017, Talia Hinojosa and Daniela Urías began working together to develop the dance project titled HEARTBEAT. This collaboration resulted in the birth of a contemporary dance work that presents a discourse on the affectation and correlation between the biological function of the human body and its emotions.

 

The work had its first presentation in a short format within the Encuentro Metropolitano de Danza Contemporánea in Nuevo León (May 2017), and it was selected by the dance critic Margarita Tortajada to participate in the Contemporáneos Show at the Teatro de la Ciudad de Monterrey alongside many local dance companies such as Cuerpo Etéreo and Sunny Savoy Dance Company.

 

Later, an intervention of the piece is presented at the Museum of the Arts of Monterrey in collaboration with the piece Yo Transporto by the artist G.T. Pellizzi.

 

Thanks to an excellent acceptance by the public, HEARTBEAT had the opportunity to perform in great theaters and festivals nationwide such as the XX Extremadura Festival 2017, the Governmental Agenda of Sonora 2018 , the 2019 National Dance Showcase in Texcoco, Mexico City, the Governmental Showcase of Sonora 2020, among others.

 

The project was recently selected to be part of the ENARTES 2020 and thanks to the excellent critics, it continues to receive offers in order to be performed in different states of the republic such as Querétaro, State of Mexico, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Chihuahua, San Luis Potosí, etc.
