ALE JIMENEZ | 
mise-en-corps/puesta en cuerpo: an embodied (an)archiving

This act of transference explores the bonds of the body, the archive and the transmission of knowledge. It inquiries the theory imbricated in practice through a doing-feeling-thinking flux where the public sphere is relevant to the embodied experience.

Engaging with avant-guard theatre-making techniques and critical race theory, using space-specific text, authentic movement, and various forms of live-art/poetry, to research the semiotics of performance.

Queer Epicenter Transformations

 

I am investigating internal transformations in durational performance art and its relationship to non-binary and transgender identities. I believe it is within the embodiment of affectual transformation that queer resistance is created through performative action.

Sound as an ecological medium defies normative boundaries between self/ other/ environment as well as oppositional binary categories (inside/outside, natural /unnatural): it suits the social challenges of our current moment, including questions of gender + sexuality.

XDZUNÚM DANAE TREJO-BOLES | the rod | la vara

A series of variations (physical explorations) between the human body and the rod; rods as measures of space, extensions of the body, weaponry, points of balance, paddles, propulsors, writing tools, etc., but also in the transformations they create in individual(s). What effect do external elements have on our physical and cognitive patterns?
