SUR OESTE, ¨11:11¨

Mexico-City based, independent arts collective, SurOeste, presents “11:11,” a contemporary dance performance reflecting the anguish, frustration and impotence of the Mexican social, political and economic climate. The piece is based on Jane Alexander’s installation in the Tate Museum of Modern Art, “African Adventure,” where Alexander creates a scene of thirteen anthropomorphic yet animal-like figures, commenting on the legacy of abuse in post-apartheid South Africa. Drawing inspiration from the enigmatic yet politically charged nature of Alexander’s piece, and incorporating elements of theater, light and sound art, SurOeste presents a thrilling performance. After touring internationally with award-winning performances, this performance marks the collective’s New York debut.
