Battery's first venture to Mexico reached a total of 100 youths. Workshops were carried out at 5 Faros across the city. We came to learn that Faro translates to 'Lighthouse', a fitting name for the community cultural centers that hosted us.

During a full week of workshops and rehearsals the students worked with Battery to create 5 brand new pieces of work in the lead up to the Feria Internacional de las Culturas Amigas Festival. The annual festival featured representatives of 89 countries from across the world; a melting pot of cultures for us to premier our new works within.
