Como perro que vuelve a su vómito
performer + creator
Set in a liminal hospital waiting room, Como perro que vuelve a su vómito (working title) is a performance exploring a daughter’s relationship to her mother’s body. Exploring an aesthetics halfway between performance and theatre, the show is a ceaseless research into the separation of bodies that used to be one—expect fluids, garbage bags, dirt, fluorescent lights, and a mariachi band. Through surrealist symbolism and affective stage imagery, Como perro que vuelve a su vómito is a reflection on and a repository of solitudes.
