What is really happening when something happens?

  • Directed by Cristian Duarte and developed in a research field entitled Chemical Fictions/Tactile Dramaturgies, this performance aims to reverberate empathy, vibrating between sincere and false physical engagement, or if you prefer, persevering for a sincere representation.

Grounded in a collective mute laughter, the work 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.
