Caer es una forma · Falling is a form

2017
Festival FITLÂ Lima, Perú

An original idea by CorpusMedio

Directed/performed by Moyra Silva

Sound/film edited by Adele Fournet

This piece began as a long-distance conversation between Moyra and Adele about the artistic work and the death of the Cuban-North American artist Ana Mendieta. Throughout an entire year they kept a collaborative investigation going based on digital communication and exchanging videos, audios and pictures.  With this experience, they discussed whether digital communication really reduces the distance to hold the continuity of affective relationships. The performance looks to engage the participants, activating their personal memories through smelling, eating or touching. The participative interaction of the audience showed that they enjoyed having a space to feel and be touched: screaming, giving massages, and playing with each other.
