IN COPRODUCTION WITH LUX BOREAL DANCE COMPANY
X CONTEST OF CHOREOGRAPHY
4x4 TJ NIGHT
We welcome you to the X Edition of the TJ Night 4x4 Choreography Contest,which takes place in the city of Tijuana within the framework of the International Dance Show Bodies in Transit and its grand finale on International Dance Day.
The public and followers of this event, which is held year after year, have classified it as a high-risk experience with touches of aesthetics, poetry and discursive metaphors where adrenaline is perceived on the surface of both the dancers and performers as well as for those who come together to witness this emotional encounter.
Bodies in motion transit through Tijuana around the month in which dance is celebrated throughout the world.
GRAND FINAL 4X4 TJ NIGHT 2022
absurd dances- Encontra2 Contemporary Dance- mexicali
Choreography: Alma Giselle Martínez Romo
Absurd Dances is a research process derived from contingency and the confinement that comes with it. We start from the absurd, based on the search for a form, language and expression where the everyday does not exist, but rather a range of opportunities within a world that is falling apart, observed through the glasses of despair
Performers: Marco Tulio Uriarte de la Garza y Alma Giselle Martinez Romo
Music: Bass bottom
war times- Refracts Stage Act- Xalapa
Choreography: Flavio Aarón Romero Barranco
War Times is a contemporary dance work that seeks to raise awareness
viewer about the important need to build community, to generate ties
as a society to cope with the complicated times that we live day by day. We address issues of social impact by creating clear metaphors and analogies between the
war conflict and social conflicts.
Isabel de Jesús Hernández Martínez, Jaqueline Cázares Betanzos, Alma Guadalupe Fernández Peralta y Juan Pablo Gallo Fernandez
Music: Ennio Morricone - Rabbia Tarantella, Rene Aubri - Now
satori- Pachyderm Dance- CDMX
Choreography: Guillermo Magallón Armenta
The staging arises from the connection of two conscious bodies, generating a synchrony of gears that lead to an ineffable visceral effect. The intimacy of the space leads these beings to connect kinesthetically, making an aesthetic and authentic show.
Guillermo Magallón Armenta y Maria Alejandra Corona Perez
Music: Violin concerto: ll. -adele antonhy, Composer: Philip Glass
jaras- Jacaranda Collective- Xalapa
Choreography: Marilyn Delfín, Paloma Pintle, Maritrini García and Karla Cabrera
Veracruz, land of light and joy where poetry abounds in trova, bolero and son. A journey that leads the viewer's imagination to immerse themselves, through four bodies, in the Veracruz culture through aromas, colors, sounds and movement that characterize the cultural richness of our country.
"...four moments in which the day
dance to the rhythm of the sones".
Performers: Maritrini García Flores, Marilyn Rangel Delfin, Karla Ailyn Hernández Cabrera y Nidia Paloma Pintle Hernandez
Music: Uriel Alejandro Ramirez Flores
The Lost Battles- nomadance- CDMX
Choreography: Irene Fernández and Victor Rodriguez
Succumbed to the congenital dialectic of decision, we human beings weave the possibilities of our lives in private, thus far from the noise of external silence and submerged in our own being, there is no other choice but to face immediate reality, our emotions.
Performers: Irene Fernandez y Victor Rodriguez
Dices- Chronic art-leisure/On-Dance radio/Collective Toy- Xalapa
Choreography: Luis Vallejo (Termy)
Millions of stories that inhabit 3 bodies, differences that come together in a small place, warm but dangerous, proximity triggers communication, the faces of the dice trigger actions, time and personal experiences.
Which side of the dice do you want to inhabit?....
