In order to understand the trembling movement of the world, it is imperative to do it from where one stands. Eduard Glissant said that there are innumerable visible and invisible ties binding all corners of the world. I am a Mexican woman living in Austria. Not only that, I’m an afro-latin brown artist. I, as everyone else, am an island connected in an archipelagic manner to the trembling ocean that is the world.
The quest of this performance leans towards pain, towards understanding my suffering as a complex combination of personal, historical and social pain. I am constantly crossed, and affected, by numerous pulses that are inscribed in my memory, my fantasies, my surroundings, in the news and in my body. We are all a pulsating conglomeration of continuous affects.
