“Engrama" is a Mexican performance project that works as a creation platform that looks for new experiences through collaboration with different artists of different disciplines: multimedia, plastic artists, musicians, electronic and mechatronics engineers and is really interested in sharing their work to a different audience at conventional and non-conventional places. This project is directed by Kenia Navarro Menez and Sergio Rogelio Ornelas García. This creation platform has been founded since 2013, and has been presented around Mexican
Republic and Caracas, Venezuela in 2015 at the “Festival Mundial de solos y duetos” with an environmental theme. For the crew its important that as a consequence of sharing its work, a feedback may occur through dialogue with the audience.
“Engrama” can be considered a nomad project because it has no established studio, so it is constantly investigating different ways to train and create.

Contemporary and interdisciplinary dance with the collaboration of plastic arts and mechatronics. Performed by two dancers, in colaboración with moving objects (mannequins heads are part of the cast). The choreography “Blanco y Nada" is about social dialogues.

The relationship between dancers and moving objects is neutral, it means that there is no main characters, no couples, and no pre-established relationships. They are just social beings dialoguing each other.

By the direction of Kenia Navarro and Sergio Ornelas, co-director and director of the collective of contemporary dance “engrama”.This choreography emerges as a piece that illustrates our social perception.

The plastic artist Itziar Guiner, achieves mannequins heads of easy mobility so the mechatronic Edson Juarez were able to move them throughout the scenic space.

The research of movement arises from help, prevent and limit the movement of each other. From this arises a duet, with a unique language and texture. These three research proposals were chosen as a way to referring to social daily life.
