Since 2003, the Mexico: Performing Arts Encounter (Enartes is its Spanish acronym) has been a key international forum for specialists and professionals in the performing arts. Its mission is to create a platform that encourages national and international mobility of soloists, groups and performing arts professionals. Enartes also seeks to encourage dialogue and the creation of collaborative networks among the meeting’s participants; promote the professionalization of groups as sustainable cultural enterprises; and foster the presentation of innovative performances, thus facilitating greater opportunities for these performances to be experienced in touring and performance circuits at home and abroad.
To achieve these objectives, Enartes hosts a series of showcases comprised of dance performances, street theater and circus shows, interdisciplinary and scenic works with new technologies, music, theater and, this year, the inclusion of performances for children and young people. Enartes also includes business meetings to encourage connections between national and international artists, cultural promoters, programmers, festival directors, and cultural venues.
