"The Biennial is a trip to discover new worlds and also to be discovered and seduced by new movements, lenguages and imaginaries to think about dancing as a way to express our emotions" says Amparo Sinisterra de Carvajar, president of the 2nd Biennial.
This is the Pacific festival, in which the most importat thing is to highlight the gastronomy, the folk music and the traditions of this region in Valle del Cauca. It is an awesome experience for the locals and of course for the visitors who want to dive into this culture.

In the center of Restrepo, in front of the Parroquia Nuestra Señora del Carmen, you will see something normal in any town: a park. But it turns out that this place is not just a park: it is an open-air museum. A space to learn about the various pre-Hispanic cultures, such as the Llama, Sonso and Yotoco cultures, which inhabited the Calima Region from the year 1600 a. C. until the sixth century.
In this place, several replicas of the pre-Colombian figures manufactured by these populations are kept, which is why it is a great opportunity to learn about the archeology of the region and to learn more about our ancestors and their customs. They reflected in materials, like, ceramics, wood, stone, their idiosyncrasy, and social and cultural development.
