Gran concierto: Entre caballos de fuerza y caballos de vapor
Artist Josué Mejía (Mexico City, 1994) presents a mobile symphonic museography that depicts the journey undertaken by characters in the Horse-Power ballet; written by the composer Carlos Chávez in collaboration with the choreographer Catherine Littlefield and artist Diego Rivera, who designed the scenography and costumes. Mejía reinterprets and musicalizes the characters created by Rivera and imagines their journey from Mexico, across the U.S. border, and ending at their presentation in Philadelphia.
