Dal Niente in Mexico City I: Foro Internacional Call for Scores

  • Museo Nacional de Arte (map)

Dal Niente performs three concerts in Mexico City on the Foro Internacional de Música Nueva Manuel Enriquez, the ambitious annual festival of the Mexican Instituto Nacional de Belles Artes (National Institute of the Fine Arts).  At the National Museum of Art, we perform compositions chosen by the Foro’s jury from their international call for scores. At the Palace of the Fine Arts, we perform a program of many of our Chicago-based or Chicago-native collaborators, including a new arrangement by Mexico-born, Chicago-residing Luis Fernando Amaya; also included is a new version of a legendary Mexican composer Julio Estrada’s yuunohui’wah for the solo percussion.  Finally, at the Theater of Dance, we renew our relationship with Deflos Danza Contemporánea (Mazatlan, Mexico) in a program featuring Argentinian-American composer Tomás Gueglio’s Proa (“prow”).
