Amanda Piña & Rodrigo de la Torre

Danza y Frontera

Research2018

A CHOREOGRAPHY OF RESISTANCE AT THE BORDER BETWEEN MEXICO AND THE US.
In this Field Project we will learn a dance from the neighbourhood of El Ejido Veinte of the city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas (MX), twin city of Brownsville, Texas (US).
The dance arises in a context of extreme violence related to narco-traffic and narco-culture.

A contemporary pop-cultural appropriation of a historical "danza de conquista" (conquest dance), in which indigenous practices, colonial narratives, HipHop culture, armed conflicts and mysticism resonate. The dance was developed and updated by a group of youngsters from the neighbourhood under the direction of Rodrigo de la Torre.
