Lectura de mi texto
Brillante * Magnética * Fugaz seguido por un performance en colobaracion con Guillaume Brisson-Darveau.

A live reading of Brillante * Magnética * Fugaz (written in Spanish) takes place in what was once an asbestos factory in Buenos Aire’s Technology District. I perform naked and fully waxed. An antistatic alveolar film overall with a male industrial cut shields my body from the external toxic elements.

Brief translation of text:
(she) is synthetic. Electric. Pliable. (she) moulds to the desired form. (she) shields her body under a plastic polymer membrane. (she) wears no undergarments. (she) slides her digits inside a latex glove. (she) smears azulene wax over her groin. (she) rids herself of all body hair. (she) gleams. (she) shines.    

At the end of reading a choreographed ritual commences: seven costumed performers form a circuit round the audience. The performance is scored to a recursive recording of my synthesised voice presented on audio speakers.

Overol Glory was produced with the support of Creative Scotland and the Conseil de Arts et des Lettres de Québec.
