ATLACUALO (2010-2011), the ceasing of water.
Acousmatic music for a multidisciplinary work, commissioned to Javier Torres Maldonado by the Navarrete x Kajiyama Dance Company fo San Francisco (U. S. A.)

Technique: GRAME (Centre National de Création Musicale) / Javier Torres Maldonado.


14 and 16.09.2012, Navarrete x Kajiyama Dancetheater, CounterPULSE Theater, San Francisco (U. S. A.)




ATLACUALO reinterprets ancient Mexican mythology and iconography to explore universal ecological issues of our time, particularly around water and water rights. ATLACUALO is an evening length, multi-disciplinary work that marries dance, performance and visual arts. It is the product of the artistic encounter between two Mexican artists living in San Francisco, Jose Navarrete and Violeta Luna, and their collaboration with hypermedia artist, Ricardo Rivera, music composer, Javier Torres Maldonado and visual artist Lauren Elder. For this engagement Navarrete and Luna have invited dramaturge Roberto Varea to add his expertise to the re-staging of ATLACUALO.
