2014, HERE WE ARE

The second play is a political statement of a performative act as a way of revolting against the condition of having to be representative, thus, two artists disobey their own representation, hack their own discourse and burst in an outbreak.

This is 2014: a dance that resists being danced, a halfway fight, a game of protest placards or superheroes trying to save the words of a modernist Mexican speech, established by the democratic system. Also a theater strike or a visual manifestation in face of the social, political and economical situation of Mexico, two years after the return of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) to Presidency.
