The Centro de Producción de Danza Contemporánea (CEPRODAC) was born in 2011 with the objective of promoting the development of contemporary dance in Mexico through of dance creation, research and experimentation processes, fostering the search for contemporary choreographic languages that provoke significant experiences, as well as reflection and aesthetic joy in the spectators of the different sectors of the population.
32 choreographic productions have been made, from national creators and foreign; 13 co-productions with different Mexican companies independent and 6 international productions. The Ceprodac begins a cycle under the direction of Marco Antonio Silva as Artistic Director and Eleno Guzmán Gutiérrez as Executive Director, who create the Ceprodac 16/20 Project, which is the result of the exercise of dialogue and recognition of the main proposals and exchange of ideas of both.
This artistic and executive project proposes three guiding axes and six lines of action to engage in a dialogue about the current situation of contemporary dance national and international standards and to establish models of interdisciplinary creation starting from artistic processes of greater complexity that lead to the creation of productions with their own scenic language that forge the artistic identity of the Ceprodac.
These choreographic productions are staged in forums as in alternative spaces, in addition to public spaces of vulnerable communities, so that the dance is a social mediator that invites the citizenship to resignify the use of the body as a constructor of poetic signs that reveal new ways of seeing the world.
