This performance emerged in self-isolation while experimenting with movement, sound looping station and textual contents that vary between rap, flow of free associations, vocal interjections and political slogans.
By proposing unexpected interpretations of the rebel figure, it generates and shares the positive and creative energy that lies in the dynamics of opposition and resistance. From the perspective of a ritual, the performer is looking for a state where her rebellious demonesses or goddesses are acting against the social organization in place, the normality, and the ritual itself – against resignation or helplessness, empowering and uniting those who are participating.
