Caribbean Region: Body as an archive

From the expressivity of a Living Picture, memories and hopes emanate, narratives of the space that are embodied through creativity, in the materialities that constitute the bodies of the performers that carry a landscape of textures, flavours, rhythms, and sounds. They are accompanied by the gestures of our family and group, which are enhanced by the power of theatre wherein images that mirror the ways of a community are shown for it to be visible to itself and grow.

These works are the response to a question: how to redefine moments of our history through our gestures? Thus, memories that were reconstructed thanks to the possibilities of photography and video, arose from the intimacy of our corporeality. Bodies that tell personal stories embedded in a territory, in a perpetual dialogue with the landscape. Stories of lives that find their roots near the Ciénaga.
