Crisálida [Chrysalis] stands for the butterflies’ growing, colour definition and sexual differentiation process, during which there are colour explosions inside the cocoon, and which is the only time they move little or nothing. Struggle, resistance and persistence are key words in this performance. The dialectics of this work have to do with demystifying gender categories, based on the existential issues of Nietzsche, Sartre and Goffman. The individual being, the social being and the creation of new concepts that encourage the discontinuity of human nature are issues on which the creator wishes to dwell in this piece. By analogy, bringing to the stage a polysemous aesthesia where the circus technique, video and a few fine arts experiences are used in order to raise new meanings and new feelings in renewed enigmas.
