O que realmente está acontecendo quando algo acontece?/ What is really happening when something happens?

Lab and Performance from the research field entitled Chemical Fictions/Tactile Dramaturgies, directed by Cristian Duarte, that focuses on reverberating empathy, vibrating between sincere and false physical engagement, or if you prefer, persevering for a sincere representation.

The work is grounded on a collective mute guffaw, in contact with the indignations generated by small and maximum humiliations we continue to daily experience in the environment in which we build and live in. The proposal explicitly carries the intention of moving a critical reflection that finds in the current political, social and cultural conjuncture its inexhaustible source in constant combustion.

What is really happening when something happens? seeks to stress the relations between bodies and things, pointing to laughter, and the neuronal mirroring that it triggers, as a political vector to problematize what exists between context-artist-public-institution.
