For-the-Words

Reflecting on the memory of historical violence and its visibility, this proposal, through writing words contained in letters/messages/declarations present in reports of historical memory (Colombia and Chile), creates a drawing of silhouettes in public space, symbolizing and pointing to the memories of those countries.

Her work has been presented in the Americas, in China, and in Europe through artist residencies and international performance festivals.


Weaving Memories

Over the last 30 years in Canada, over 4000 indigenous women have either disappeared or been found killed, dumped in lakes, forests, or along roadsides. In the continuity of my investigations on femicides in the Americas, by weaving seaweed and corn leaves together, I will build my own body bag, such as a memorial for our missing sisters.

Coletivo Teatro da Margem was founded in 2007 in the city of Uberlandia (Minas Gerais, Brazil). It develops artistic research and practices that gravitate between theater and performance. The collective is currently based in Teatro Círculo, where it implements training programs and activities with artists and community members.


Bodies that Remain

The street performance Bodies that Remain focuses on contemporary urban violence. In this procession work through city sites, the performers leave their marks, records, and traces of this violence.

Complejo Conejo is a collective of theatrical designers and actors, all Universidad de Chile alumni. Its purpose is to install fiction in public and private spaces through urban interventions and performances. They experiment with zoomorphia, rescuing cultural memory and popular imaginaries as a discursive element.


Exterminated Like Mice

“Complejo Cornejo” remembers the victims of the past 41 years by using the famous and cruel 1975 headline of pro‐Pinochet newspaper La Segunda, created as part of a cover‐up operated by the secret services for the killing of 119 people opposing the regime. Today, 41 years after the coup, we are all mice.

Footprints

Footprints is an artwork supported by 50 performers, who use flour to print the hands of the passersby of the Chilean Courts Palace of Justice. After a while, a hairdryer will try to remove the handprints, which they will seem trying to resist to disappear, a symbol of the memory of Chile and the thousands of disappeared people in Latin America.
