CONEXIÓN THE ARTS
Conexión The Arts represents, promotes, assesses, and brings to life Art Projects, by strengthening their essence and connecting with spaces, festivals, cultural projects, venues, audiences, brands, alliances, and new territories.
Music, literature, exhibitions, photography, performance, and reading encouragement programs, as well as the promotion of artists, are projects that this company fosters.
LIBROSVIVOS is an experience in real time that turns to books through its relation with diverse scenic languages, unleashing a universe of possibilities for projects that fuse art, music, and literature.
LIBROSVIVOS has two main offers: ROCK&LIBROS y LIBROSVIVOS Presents.
ROCK&LIBROS successfully premiered in the context of the 15th anniversary of Festival Vive Latino, under the direction of the writer Juan Villoro and Diego Herrera (Caifanes), with their show Mientras Nos Dure el Veinte (“While the Wind Lasts”)—one of the essential works of this Mexican author’s catalog—and Xavier Velasco and Paco Huidobro (Fobia), with the production of La Cocina del Diablo (“The Devil’s Kitchen”), concerning a "Guardian Devil". In this way, the writers become rock stars who take the microphone as they are surrounded by the prestige of their sonic accomplices.
In addition, LIBROSVIVOS is a project that aims to promote literature through a marketing campaign that connects the works of new and renowned authors with products related to positive experiences (lifestyle).
