An important event that has marked the born of a new international protest that has reacted to the dramatic event, attracting the world’s attention on the serious conditions afflicting Mexico, where the relation between governament and narcos has caused in 10 years more than 30000 “desparecidos”.

The 43 participants will be introduced to the themes of the project and will develop, a series of choral physical actions that will lead to the creation of an urban performance Megalopolis#Roma. The performance will be staged on 8th October within the festival Attraversamenti multipli in Largo Spartaco.
