Recuerdos del Presente/Memories of the Present
SEGUIR (Premiere) 40 min.
SEGUIR, Stages a body that demanded patience and appreciation trough the recovery of surgeries to remove endometriosis and tumours. It is about the female self, identity and resilience in a body that is transforming while ageing, while living, while dancing. On this work I take space and time for a ritualistic momento to honor my body and women’s body, while dancing on stage with a shimmery yet dangerous company.

Recuerdos del Presente 45 min.
...-Two beers to start and two beers to continue, I want to go home-...
“Recuerdos del presente” insists on the rhythm of the Andean Cumbia and its tonalities recalling nostalgia during celebration. A space that puts in dialogue three elements that emerged from the research: the cumbia, the ch'alla and the party; these create an intermediate space where different imaginaries and narratives meet, having at its center the contradiction - opposition sadness/happiness, loneliness/companionship. The performer explores a re-encounter with traces of family parties, shared intoxications, zapateos rompe taquito that go through an exercise of memory and from a feeling of nostalgia the social is re-defined through the symbolic.

NON FUCKABLE TOKENS (NFTs) (German Premiere) 25 min.
How does the development of new technologies shape our self-perception? Non Fuckable Tokens (NFTs) is a performance by Claudix Vanesix, XR artist from Peru, that combines Performance Art with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to critically display the impact of technology in our era. The work explores the development of internet culture from a decolonial feminist perspective, making explicit the misogyny that underlies in digital spaces. This performance also reflects on how futuristic narratives can be in dialogue with ancestral identities.

This is a performance and an experimental 360° documentary film about the traditional dance of my family "Los Negrasos de Sipsa”: The black men from Sipsa.
My grandfather, my father and my brother danced as I grew up, I didn't: The tradition says only men can dance. I was born a woman and I was not born in Sipsa. I don’t know how to dance a man’s dance that I was not explicitly forbidden to dance.
Dance Permit (Denied) is an immersive film that uses Artificial Intelligence and performance art to challenge gender norms in traditional religious dances in indigenous Peru. It's an autobiographical documentary about the traditional dance of my family "Los Negrasos de Sipsa", that explores a centennial view on the themes of gender, memory and reinvention of the ancestral
