We are a group of managing artists, gathered to investigate, produce and spread scenic proposals that raise questions based on a philosophy of openness and dialogue, transferring knowledge from other disciplines to artistic work.

Since 2010, we have worked in collective projects that have led to a constant exchange with guest creators, keeping our conceptions of art and scene moving. We are part of the Alternate Network for the Performing Arts, an organization of artists based in Yucatan, Mexico which aims to create cooperation strategies that improve the quality of life of its members.

In 2018, the “Wireframe” work won the Guillermo Arriaga National Choreography Award, INBA-UAM. 

We have been supported by the Ministry of Culture, National Institute of Fine Arts, IBERMÚSICAS and IBERESCENA, National Fund for Culture and Arts, National Center for the Arts, Stimulus Program for Artistic Creation and Development, Training Center and Choreographic Production de Morelos, Mexican Center for Music and Sound Arts of Morelia and Mérida City Council.

With the interest of expanding the public´s experience and spreading our proposals, we develop the continuous training platforms Experiences in Transit and Immersion. We are currently collaborating with Olga Gutiérrez (Mexico), Paula González (Chile-Mexico), Karen de Luna (Mexico), David Brandstätter (Germany) and Andrea Catania (CostaRica).
