  1. Iter (path, journey)
    This video is the first of a series that focuses on the subjectivity of a migrant artist (work-in-progress). The feeling of being lost and the search for meaning are both explored through a dialogue between medieval references (Dante’s Divine Comedy and Machaut’s music) and contemporary visuals.

  2. Español
    ¿La libertad del cuerpo femenino solo puede estar asociada a la desnudez? ¿Cómo construimos la imagen pública de nuestros cuerpos? ¿Es solo fruto de la aceptación pasiva de las imposiciones sociales o es producto de las reflexiones personales? ¿Quién tiene el derecho a decidir sobre la visibilidad pública del cuerpo femenino? En el proyecto “La habitación” intento abordar estas preguntas a través de un diálogo entre música, y memoria individual, proponiendo una acción donde el cuerpo femenino es problematizado y representado a través de la voz, entendida como sonido y como escritura.

    English
    Do the freedom of the female body can only be linked to nudity? How do we construct the public image of our bodies? Is it just the result of passive acceptance of social impositions or product of personal reflections? Who has the right to decide on the public visibility of the female body? The project “The Room” intends to address these questions in a performance where the female body is represented through voice, considering it both as sound and writing.

  4. Fragmentos recobrados is an interdisciplinary action about gender violence exercised through psychological abuse, a kind of aggression that leaves no physical traces, which is mainly manifested in language and often masked behind appearances. The performance is based on fragments recovered from personal memory and from the observation of everyday life in the streets. These fragments are expressed through the body, writing and voice. The stigma of gender stereotypes, pain, lack of communication and resilience, are some of the issues addressed in this action that invites the audience to reflect on a type of violence exercised daily.

    Music:
    Guillaume de Machaut: Complainte from Remede de Fortune (Fortune's cure) c.1342.
    J.S. Bach: Sarabande from Partita BWV 1013, 1722-3.
    Anonymous. Ave donna santissima from Laudario di Cortona, 13th century.
