The Tijuana Cultural Center (Cecut) in the city of Tijuana will be hosting the ninth Entijuanarte festival from October 4th to 6th, and from September 26th to October 3rd, across a number of different venues. This year’s “special guest” will be the state of Durango, with cultural offerings and activities focusing on “Duranguense” culture. Over ten days, you can enjoy a range of art forms from the region, from visual arts, music, literature, theater and cinema, to a full-scale production with 57 on-stage actors in the spectacular stage musical “Kicham Turistico”.
Included in the 25 musical shows and 40 cultural activities will be the opportunity to savor the grand exhibition of the work of Guillermo Cisneros, as well as the “Casual Encounters” exhibition of father and son Manual and German Valles, both artists at the Galeria Alvaro Blancarte at Autonomous University Baja California. Don’t miss the fresh and innovative artistic performance offered up by the Cuerda Floja theater company as they present two free shows on the Cecut esplanade.
The musical portion of the event, on October 4th, 5th and 6th, includes shows by groups from the region such as Slares, Ramona, Roxanna, Teenage Fiction, Klandestino and many others over the course of the mornings and part of the afternoon. Into the evening, groups such as Radaid from Guadalajara, Federico Barragan Jazz Trio from Durango, La Rumorosa from Mexico City and singer-songwriter Vanessa Zamora from Tijuana will be putting the rhythm into the night’s festivities. Saturday will be headlined by Natalia Lafourcade, with A Band of Bitches closing the festival on Sunday night.
Don’t miss Entijuanarte, a gathering packed with culture activities open to all and a space for artistic expression from the region and across the nation. For more information: www.entijuanarte.org.
