MeM#7—11) Tren azul cincuentas (Rocío Becerril. México) 10:16 min. from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.
Carlos and Carmela leave on a train, they’re the cream of progress. We are in the fifties, in the Mcarthyism times, cold war and memories of the second world war that come back from time to time. People dress well, they work a lot, even too much, to the point of satiety. The machines that surround them are silent witnesses of their bodies thirsty for freedom, self assurance and happiness, but we should always keep those appereances, except that particular day inside an intense train in cold blue color.

Choreographer. Rocío completed her masters degree in video and dance at the University of Quebec in Montreal. Her works have been outlined, since the beginning, as multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary scenic proposals, where dance, filmic image, painting, and sculpture have a privileged place. In 1996 she founded the company R + R arte y movimiento. Literature, philosophy and science have inspired her, achieving in her career over 30 interdisciplinary scenic and audiovisual works. Her choreographic and videodance production has been presented in Mexico, Montreal, Brazil, Spain, Uruguay and Cuba. Her work in collaboration with plastic and sound artists has enabled her to venture into choreographic installation concepts and interventions in unconventional spaces.
