‘Cuerpo y Cuerpo’ is a project born from the need of feeling out loud. It is a tale where the words can not access, they got lost trying to express themselves screaming, full of pain and full of life, sweet notes but with sorrow; words of love and rage, tiredness, and finally acceptance and calmness.

I wanted to retrieve that inner body that had died and bring it back to life, feel it alive like the skin that took in my tears; to sew it like my womb once was; and to love it like life. Each hole embedded in bones, hold by muscles, those the soul wears. The hands accommodated waiting, aware and transforming, I honor them with this continuous stroke.

A stroke that doesnt exist alone, small empty spaces string along with it, showing then its matter and identity. The repetition and the scale are like a tireless mantra making the time harmonic and the harmony epiphany. I have laid off all my costumes to beg the present to exist in me.

‘Cuerpo y Cuerpo’ talks about the existance’s fragility about what remains despite all, despite the death. It is a remedy for life’s grief and it is the beauty’s sanctuary. As well, it is an intention disclosure: I want to show what happens when you decide to live, to recognize the geography of the skin so each oneself becomes a treasure map.

Ten figures join together to make a sole body, with open chest and thoughfull gaze; eternal transformation.
