At the beginning of 2020, La Infinita Compañia finds itself working on La Novena Sinfonía Danza Contemporánea for the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birthday, then the world stopped. Raúl Tamez the director and choreographer of this dance theater play, decides to move on with the project. This documentary shows a historic moment in the life of the dancers and creators that form part of this play based on the legendary masterpiece by Beethoven, during one of the major health crises of modern times. How do you create a dance play in México under these circumstances?
