PHANTASM

First play of the trilogy HOW TO PUT THE BODY?by Olga Gutiérrez, to be premiered in September on the city of Guadalajara, México. The choreographer received the National System of Art Creators of the Mexican National Fund for Culture and Arts grant for this project.

The forced disappearance of a body produces a “phantasm”, a person deprived of his/her body. In their absence, their relatives bring to live this body through mental representations. From decades, Mexico has turned into a country of phantasms that are returned to life through imagination, thought and memory, this has become the only way to provide justice for this bodies, a form of resistance in the face of oblivion.

HOW TO PUT THE BODY? is a trilogy 2017-2021 towards different body violations in Mexico between the period from 1994 to 2021.
