Temporal Interference

Temporal Interference was performed at Performatica, a dance festival in Pueblas, Mexico.

Quoting from the catalog:

The city/state of Puebla has a growing contemporary dance scene. It has an appreciative spectator base, a sense of both the value of its own tradition, and a desire to look into its global future. Because of this, Mayra Morales and Ray Eliot Schwartz – both professors of Dance at the Universidad de Las Americas in San Andreas Cholula – have brought Performática: International Forum of Contemporary Dance and Movement Arts to Puebla. During twelve days this international forum of more than 120 dance artists and groups from Mexico, the United States, Latin America, Europe, Canada and New Caledonia will convene workshops, roundtable discussions and performances. The goal is to facilitate international and intercultural exchange of dance practices, knowledge, theory and culture as related to the contemporary discourse of bodily movement, expression, and philosophy. Many of the visiting artists are award-winning choreographers, teachers, and performers.

With the arts as the centerpiece of Performática, the effects of the event will reach widely into the community. One of the missions of Performática consists of creating international institutional bridges as well as local ones, and, in doing so, the Forum has obtained the participation of local artist spaces and institutions such as Casa de Cultura, The Pyramid of Cholula, Anonimo, Pallavatch center for slowfood and culture, and various primary schools of San Andrés Cholula. Support has also been give by the Secretary of Culture for the State of Puebla, City Council of Puebla, the Office of the Cultural Attache of the U.S. Embassy, and local businesses and organizations in Puebla and Cholula. In bringing contemporary dance practices to all of these spaces – with free admission to all events – Performática will impact the area through the unique method of public sharing that only live performance can bring.
