Pavilion brings forward its creative and innovative culture by displaying a
transmedia project called Infinitos ∞ on February 15 ,2022 at the Dubai Exhibition Center,
at Expo 2020.

Visitors at the Expo 2020 Dubai get an opportunity to listen to
over 300 diverse thoughts and reflections on the Covid-19 pandemic narrated
with the use of art, technology, dance, and music.

Infinitos integrates various disciplines and aims to tell people’s
real-life experience and their reflections on the pandemic. The collaborative
work presents these stories with four categories- revelations, nostalgias, detachments,
and omens.

Infinitos ∞ is a collective project of “La Quinta del
Lobo” commissioned by the Teatro Colón in Bogotá, Colombia. It was led
by Carmen Gil Vrolijk, media artist and professor at the
University of the Andes; Camilo Giraldo, musician, and composer; Juan Carlos
Echeverry, tenor and pianist, Juanita Delgado voice and interpretation,
Francisco Rincón, dancer and choreographer, and Sebastián
Gonzalez Dixon, electronic artist, integrating various disciplines with art and
technology.

First launched in 2020, the collaborative work invited the public
to be co-creators by submitting stories, both reality, and fiction, through a
dedicated website. The second phase, released in 2021, was composed of five
films based on the writings collected from the website and were translated into
image, music, dance, and action. These collected stories and narratives were
brought to life with an immersive performance installation at the Teatro Colon
in Bogota on March 2021

This rich blend of fiction and reality presented through sounds,
dance, art, and multimedia awaits Expo 2020 visitors.
