Cerdas (Sows) depicts the problems and consequences that materialise when body worship fails. By way of a series of scenes and seemingly unconnected “re-performances”, Carlos García de la Vega, Rodrigo García Marina and Rocío Simón devise a landscape to prepare the body for an “other” that is seldom present, creating vagueness in the narcissistic relationship between another possible body and another body-subject. The artists, harnessing repetition and the theatre of the absurd, show the violence inherent in certain regulated spaces that prevent queer corporality, for instance marriage, cybersex, dance, the beauty salon and the fashion show.

Warning: this performance may contain sexual images and nudity.
