MUTEK takes over Mexico October 2010

 

MUTEK is once again busy preparing an extensive presence in Mexico this fall including our return to the 38th edition of the Festival Internacional Cervantino (FIC) running October 13 - November 7, 2010 in Guanajuato. The largest multidisciplinary festival in Latin America, and one of the largest in the world, the FIC first invited MUTEK to program several events for its 2009 edition. Following the resounding success of these events, a collaborative agreement was signed with the FIC that  designates MUTEK  as curator of their digital arts program over the next several years.

It is thus with pleasure that MUTEK has proudly expanded its FIC program in 2010, as we further explore the incredible playground that is the city of Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Set up over four consecutive weekends, the MUTEK program begins with three free outdoor showcases at Los Pastitos park. Through these showcases, MUTEK continues to nurture its longstanding ties with Latin America in order to let shine the vitality and talent brewing in Chile (DANDY JACK, NICOLAS JAAR, ANDRÉS BUCCI, LOS UPDATES), Argentina (ISMAEL PINKLER, ERNESTO FERREYRA, LEONEL CASTILLO, FRANCO CINELLI) and Colombia/Mexico (SAVAN, CERO39, LOS AMPARITO, BN LOCO), today.

Weekend two ups the ante by taking the outdoor formula to the Aguilar y Mara baseball park in the heart of the city in order to present some of the most noticed acts at MUTEK events over the last few years. On the menu: CARIBOU [CA], THE FIELD [SE], DEADBEAT with PAUL ST. HILAIRE [CA/DM], MODERAT [DE], and the MODERN DEEP LEFT QUARTET [CA].

Weekend three takes off to explore even more of the city, with two leftfield projects that are sure to resonate across town: SEÑOR COCONUT & HIS ORCHESTRA [DE/CL] at the central square of Explanada de la Alhóndiga de Granaditas, and THE NATIONAL FANFARE OF KADEBOSTANY [CH] at the plaza San Roque. PIERRE BASTIEN [FR] rounds out the weekend on a completely different note, presenting his unique theatre of musical automatons and devices.

The MUTEK series closes in Guanajuato's underground, on the fourth and final weekend, as the CÓMEME collective takes over one of the city's tunnels to reunite MATIAS AGUAYO and REBOLLEDO among others.

And as if this all this wasn't enough, several sister events are also planned for Mexico City!
